The temperature of the top of a storm cloud in 2018 is the coldest measured by a satellite

Using advanced infrared imaging technology aboard an Earth-orbiting satellite, scientists have measured the coldest temperature of a storm cloud on record at a chilling −111.2 °C. The severe thunderstorm barreled across the Pacific in late 2018 where it grew to an exceptionally high altitude and pushed into the stratosphere, an event researchers say is becoming more and more common.
