Why? Time magazine is reporting that the temperature of continent of Antarctica appears to have hit 63.5°F last Tuesday for the first time, according to bloggers at Weather Underground. The prior record was was 62.8°F, set on April 24, 1961.

- Studies have documented melting ice along Antarctica’s coasts.
