June Marks 4th Consecutive Month to Be Hottest on Record

Posted on July 19, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

This may come as no surprise, but after a record breaking March, April, and May, June became the fourth consecutive month to be the hottest on record this year.  This June exceeded the record, previously held in 2005, by about 0.11 degrees Celcius.  Additionally, this June marks the 304th consecutive month with above average worldwide temperatures, with February 1985 to be the last month with below average temperatures worldwide.  Looks like we may need to redefine what is average in a warming earth.  To read more about this record setting month, check out the article at Science Daily.

Here in the DC area, this record breaking June was certainly felt in full force.  With a whopping 18 days reading 90 degrees or warmer, DC broke its own record for the hottest June ever.  And that’s not even taking into account the gosh darn humidity…
