January 2020 was the record-breaking January, NOAA said

January was the hottest in 141 years of weather record keeping last month Monthly assessment By the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The January 2020 record beat the January 2016 record by 0.04 ° F (0.02 ° C).

The warmest Year Always recorded in 2016, followed by 2019 2019, however, when the trends of the first month of this year are marked, both may be displaced.

A Statistical analysis By NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information Scientists, 2020 “will probably be ranked within the five warmest years of record”.

According to NOAA data, the global land and sea surface temperatures were 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit (1.8 degrees Celsius) in January 2020. In any land or sea, January’s temperature was not record-cool.

Significantly, the record was “the highest monthly temperature drop without an El Nino present in the tropical Pacific Ocean.” El Ni ।o Developing is a natural cycle of warming the ocean surface temperatures every few years in the middle and sometimes in the eastern equatorial Pacific.

Temperatures are rising in the 21st century. The hottest January of all happened since 2002, the four warmest were held in the last four years.

The last 10 years marked The hottest decade on record, According to an annual Global Climate Report Published in January by NASA and NOAA. The last five years were the hottest for the last 140 years.

“Temperatures were at least nominally on January 9th and January 12th, and above average in the 20th century,” the NOAA report said.

January was the hottest January so far, with temperatures varying in different parts of the world. It was the warmest January in the Northern Hemisphere record, averaging 2.70 degrees F (0.6 degrees Celsius), but it was the second warmest January in the Southern Hemisphere, after only 20 seconds.

According to NOAA, “the hottest-average ground temperature” this January was present in Russia and Scandinavia and most of eastern Canada, where temperatures were 9.0 ° F (5.0 ° C) above or below average. ” On the opposite end of the spectrum, “significant cool temperatures” were recorded in Alaska and most parts of western Canada in January, with temperatures averaging 7.2 degrees F (less than 0.6 degrees Celsius).

Even after the global temperature rise in January, the weather in a particular region cannot be correlated. This is because a month, or even a year, is not necessarily an indicator of climate.

“The difference between the weather and the climate is a measure of time,” according to NASA. “When we talk about climate change, we talk about changes in the long-term average of the daily weather.”
