Maximiliano Herrara, a climatologist who tracks extreme temperatures across the globe, said the temperature anomalies, which have persisted over huge areas, are unprecedented. He had expected a "scorching summer" due to La Niña, a climate pattern which tends to bring hotter, drier summers to the region, but what has happened shocked him.
