Brazil experienced its highest ever temperature of 44. 8C (1126F) during a very hot heatwave.
On Sunday, in a town called Araçuaí, a new record was made in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil.
The unusual weather is caused by El Niño and changes in the climate.
Predictors say that the weather will probably not be as hot this week.
According to the National Institute of Meteorology (Inmet), CNN Brasil reported that only three capital cities will have temperatures close to 40 degrees Celsius.
The government agency reported that the temperature in Araçuaí reached 44. 8C, which is higher than the country’s previous record of 44. 7C in 2005
The weather is very hot and there are warnings for people to be careful, even though it’s still a month before summer starts in the southern part of the world. Energy use in Brazil has gone up a lot because people are using more electricity to stay cool.
The hot weather caused Taylor Swift to cancel a concert in Rio de Janeiro because a fan got sick and died before the show on Friday.
According to the people in charge, Ana Clara Benevides Machado, who is 23 years old, asked for help at the stadium because she was not feeling well. She was moved to the hospital but passed away an hour later.
A recent study found that the temperature in the country was higher than usual from July to October.
Crazy weather is happening a lot more and getting stronger in many places because of climate change.
Scientists say that heatwaves are getting longer and stronger in many places because people keep releasing gases that warm the planet. They think this will keep happening in the future.
Right now, the Earth is experiencing El Niño, which usually makes the global temperatures rise.
