12th of July: World weather extremes past 24 hours: Hottest, coldest, wettest and windiest places on our wonderful planet

A new look at 24 hour weather extremes every day on The Big Wobble to help us track and keep an eye on what the 'experts' are telling us.
If you are living in the northern hemisphere and most of my visitors are, a lot of you will be complaining about the heat recently, well spare a thought for or friends in Mitribah (Kuwait) with the highest temperature I have seen this year with a high of  52.4°C 126.3 F.
In my years blogging I have never recorded so many severe heatwaves as this summer in the northern hemisphere.


If you like it cool then the best place for you today, as was yesterday too is Dome A (Antarctica) where the temperature actually increased yesterday to a balmy -80.6°C -113 F.


Dehradun (India) was the wettest place on the planet yesterday with 226 mm or nearly 9 inches of rain in the last 24 hours, see below.


As the strength of Hurricane Eugene diminishes winds of 91 km/h off the coast of Antarctica was the windiest place on the planet in the last 24 hours.


A major quake of mag 6.6 was recorded near the South Island of New Zealand, the second of July
