Hot weather puts Okinawa into the record books

Date Posted: 2008-01-11

Naha City, Tokyo and Miyakojima City have one thing in common now; they’ve all registered the second hottest temperatures in history.

The Japanese Meteorological Agency says 2007 was a wild, warm and hot year, both in winter and summer, leading to 41 cities, towns and villages logging new record high temperatures. Even more to the point, the Agency says average temperatures at nearly two dozen measuring locations showed historically higher than readings last year.

Overall, Japan temperature averages were 1.1C higher than normal, while Okinawa was warmer by 0.6C. A total of 153 locations were monitored, with 71 showing higher temperatures during the year. Rainfall was higher than normal years, as well. The Meteorological Agency says Okinawa had “too much rainfall.”
