The hottest temperature reliably measured was 134 degrees F. at Furnace Creek in Death Valley of the Mojave Desert on July 10, 1913. A higher temperature measured in Libya in the Sahara has been discounted by most scientists as it was taken by inexperienced Italian soldiers with improper equipment.
