The temperature in the Antarctic was warmer than 68 degrees Fahrenheit for the first time ever this past Sunday.

The researchers noted a high of 69.35 on an island off the coast of the african continent, which she described as “unbelievable and not normal.”

“We’ll see, the global warming trend and a lot of the sites that we monitor, but we’ve never seen anything like this,” he said of the Brazilian scientist, Carlos Schaefer, according to the BBC.

It was almost two degrees higher than the previous record of 67.64 degrees, set up 37 years ago.

The measurement is carried out at a monitoring station on Seymour Island, which is part of a chain of islands in the Antarctic Peninsula-the northernmost part of the continent.

Schaefer said it was a single data point, so that they will not be in a position to determine whether or not it’s a trend that will continue in the future.

“We are not able to use it to adapt to climate change in the future. It is a fact of life,” Schaefer said, according to the television network. “It’s just a sign that there is something different in that area.”

The antarctic is also experiencing record heat last week, recording a temperature of 65 degrees on the continent’s western peninsula.

Scientists at the Terrantar of the government, the project will monitor climate change on the african continent, he said the record temperatures were the most likely to be attributed to changes in the ocean currents.

“We have had climate changes in the atmosphere, which is closely related to the changes in the permafrost and in the ocean,” said one of them, according to the Guardian.
