Car temperature reaches 70°C on a warm day

Using a wireless temperature logger
On a warm autumn day, why does my temperature logger alarm go off for the car? Turns out that I left it in the sun and it actually reached 70°.

It was autumn. It wasn’t too hot. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping. It’s a nice day.

And then my phone alarm starts going off. The car is hot. Way too hot…

The glass has turned my car into a sauna. Actually, it’s probably more like a steamer. Sit in there at the moment and you will be cooked.

It amazes me that people will still leave their kids or pets in a car and duck into the shops or a friend’s place. All it takes is for the sun to come out from behind a cloud and within minutes your car can turn into a furnace.
