Temps soar to 165 degrees in Iran

Record-breaking heat has spread out across the Middle East.

On Friday, the real-feel temperature in Bandar Mahshahr, Iran was 165 degrees!

The actual temperature was closer to 115 degrees.

A four-day public vacation was called in Iraq because it was too hot to work, reported the Telegraph.

The highest recorded real-feel temperature occurred in 2003 in Saudi Arabia where it felt like 178 degrees.

A high-pressure ridge is causing the sweltering temperatures.
