The summers in the Northern Hemisphere are generally hotter than in the Southern Hemisphere for several reasons, including: Tilt of the Earth: The Earth is tilted on its axis, which means that during the Northern Hemisphere summer, the North Pole is tilted towards the Sun. This means that the Northern Hemisphere receives more direct sunlight and experiences longer days, which results in warmer temperatures. Landmass: The Northern Hemisphere has more landmass than the Southern Hemisphere, which means that it heats up more quickly and retains heat for longer periods of time. This results in higher temperatures during the summer months. Ocean Currents: The ocean currents in the Northern Hemisphere are warmer than those in the Southern Hemisphere, which also contributes to the warmer temperatures during the summer months. Overall, the combination of these factors results in the Northern Hemisphere experiencing hotter summers than the Southern Hemisphere. Notice the difference from the hottest temperature at the top of the list – to the coldest temperature at the bottom! The temperature spread on our planet is amazing! These are the hottest and coldest locations in the past 7 days that recorded the associated temperature for at least one hour.
