July was Earth's hottest month on record

 


Earth just keeps getting hotter. July was the planet’s warmest month on record, smashing old marks, U.S. weather officials said.

And it’s almost a dead certain lock that this year will beat last year as the warmest year on record, they said.

July’s average temperature was 61.86 degrees Fahrenheit, beating the previous global mark set in 1998 and 2010 by about one-seventh of a degree, according to figures released Thursday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That’s a large margin for weather records, with previous monthly heat records broken by a 20th of a degree or less.
