American singer Frank Sinatra once joined a long list of musicians crooning about a love for Paris year-round: “I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles. … I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles.”
But Sinatra might not have loved this much sizzle: French meteorologists reported the temperature in Paris soared to 108.6 degrees on July 25—the city’s hottest day on record.
A summer heat wave broke records across Europe, and it even baked Alaska: The temperature in Anchorage hit 90 degrees in July.
