World weather records:
Depending on the source, the information is more or less different. Sometimes the location or date of the records do not match. Smaller (rounding) errors are also caused by the conversion from Fahrenheit to Celsius and inches to mm or m and vice versa. 

(*) On 19 (21 UTC) and 20 January 2010 (00 UTC) the stations 44221 Gandan Huryee and 44224 Tsetsen Uul (both Mongolia) reported values of 1086.2 and 1086.6 hPa. However, the stations are located at altitudes of 1,421 and 1,928 m above sea level, and with temperatures of -44.5 and -42.7 ° C at the time of recording, a reduction of the air pressure to sea level is subject to big errors and is inadmissible. Thus, these values do not represent valid world records. 

(**) On 13 September 2012, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) invalidated the 90-year-old record from Libya. The reason given is erroneous measurement conditions: Official press relase. Since then, the Death Valley in the USA with 56.7 °C on 10 July 1913 is official record holder, where on 12.07.2012 also the officially hottest night was recorded with a minimum temperature of 41.7 °C.
