Scientists have just published research showing the top of one tropical storm cloud system in 2018 reached -111°C, which is likely a record low temperature for the earth's surface and atmosphere. https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-56542408

Dr Proud and Scott Bachmeier, a research meteorologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, US, report the event in a paper in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2020GL092261
