Madrid was the world's coldest capital city on Friday at 9.2ºC
20 May 2013 @ 00:29

MADRID was the coldest capital city in the world on Friday (May 17) – it's official.

With maximum daytime temperatures of 9.2ºC, it was chillier than every other capital city in the northern and southern hemisphere that day.

And the humidity levels registered meant that it felt much colder than 9.2ºC, according to weather records.

Even Moscow reached maximum temperatures of 25ºC, and the second-coldest capital in Europe – Brussels – had highs of 9.7ºC, or 0.5ºC warmer than Madrid.

La Paz, the capital of Bolivia, was the third-chilliest capital in the world at 10ºC.

Even in the southern hemisphere, where winter is fast approaching, temperatures were higher than in Madrid – Buenos Aires was the coldest capital in South America (which officially starts at the México-Guatemala border) at 15.5ºC and Canberra (Australia) registered highs of 14.6ºC.
