The previous record was also set by Oman: on June 27, 2011, the lowest temperature in one part of the country was 41.9 degrees Celsius.The temperature in Quriyat remained above 41.9 degrees Celsius for 51 consecutive hours.By Tuesday afternoon, the city's highest temperature had reached 49.8 degrees Celsius.
Media reports said Tuesday's record-breaking Heat was linked to the Heat Dome.
