The U.N. weather agency says an Argentine research base on the northern tip of Antarctica is reporting a temperature that, if confirmed, could amount to a record high for the icy continent.

The World Meteorological Organization said Friday the base has recorded 18.3 degrees Celsius (64.9 Fahrenheit) — topping the former record of 17.5 degrees tallied in March 2015.

WMO says the Antarctic Peninsula on the continent's northwest tip near South America is among the fastest warming regions on Earth.

Temperatures there have risen almost 3 degrees Celsius over the last half-century.
