  Europe posts its warmest January on record Europe posts its warmest January on record , coming on the heels of a toasty December and making the 2019-2020 winter season a contender for the warmest Europe has observed.The European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service announced Tuesday morning that January 2020 was Europe’s warmest January on record, edging out previous record holder January 2007 by 0.36 degrees.The month was a staggering 5.6 degrees above the 1981 to 2010 baseline of ‘‘average’’ January temperatures across the European continent as a whole, with much of northeastern Europe surpassing benchmark values by nearly 11 degrees.

The record temperatures in January follow an exceptionally warm 2019, which has been ranked as the second The past five years and the past decade are the hottest in 150 years of record -keeping, an indication of Noaa said the four warmest Januarys on record have occurred since 2016, while the

Last month has been named the hottest January in 141 years of recorded climate history, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. 

The global land and ocean surface temperature in January was the highest on record for the month at 2.05 degrees Fahrenheit, surpassing a record set in 2016, NOAA scientists said in a press release Thursday. No land or ocean areas had record cold January temperatures.

Last month was the hottest January on record , the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ( NOAA ) announced on Thursday. Record -cold January temperatures were not recorded in any land or ocean areas. NOAA noted that temperatures topped 20th century averages

Indeed, looking across the NOAA ’s 141 year records , January 2020 ’s global land and ocean surface temperature was 2.05-degrees For the twelve month period from February 2019 to January 2020 , NOAA says , 4.99-inches above average rainfall makes it the third-wettest such period ever recorded .

The four warmest Januarys documented in the climate record have all occurred since 2016, while the 10 warmest have occurred since 2002.

January 2020 also marked the 44th consecutive January and the 421st consecutive month overall with temperatures above the 20th century average, according to the release.

Record-warm temperatures were experienced across parts of Scandinavia, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the central and western Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and Central and South America.

In 141 years of climate records , January 2020 was the hottest January yet, according to scientists from NOAA 's National Centers for Environmental According to NOAA 's report, parts of Russia, Scandinavia and eastern Canada saw the most notable warmer-than-average land temperatures

The following month was the hottest January on record , says NOAA , and researchers are investigating the possibility of a new record high The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration crunched the numbers and declared January 2020 the hottest January on record .

In addition, polar sea ice coverage remained smaller than normal and Arctic sea ice coverage was 5.3% below the average between 1981 and 2010. Snow coverage in the Northern Hemisphere was also below the 1981 to 2010 average.

The U.S. felt widespread warmth during the month of January, which marks the third time ever that nation-wide temperatures were warmer than average, NOAA announced earlier this week.

"January 2020 was the fifth-warmest January on record for the Lower 48 (aka "the contiguous United States," or CONUS)," according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration climate.gov.

January 2020 marked the 44th consecutive January and the 421st consecutive month with temperatures, at least nominally Here’s more from NOAA ’s January global climate report The January global land and ocean surface temperature was the highest on record at 2.05 degrees F

Both the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA calculated that in 2014 the world had its hottest year in 135 years of record -keeping. The last time the Earth set an annual NOAA record for cold was in 1911. NOAA also said last month was the hottest December on record .

The first month of the year, on average, is the coldest of the year, but in 2020 a small handful of CONUS climate divisions were warmer than average.

"The only climate divisions in the CONUS that were cooler than average were in eastern Utah and southern Colorado," the government agency reported. "Alaska, meanwhile, marched to its own January drum, with colder-than-average temperatures across most of the state."

a herd of sheep standing on top of a pile of snow:           The      National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'a annual      Arctic Report Card, which describes how the Arctic has      changed each year, came out this week.        The report warns that global sea level rise is on track with    one of climate scientists' worst-case predictions.                     Ice melt due to       climate change contributes to sea-level rise, which leads      to flooding in coastal areas.         This year is expected to be the second or third warmest year    on record, while average temperatures from the last decade are on    track to be the highest ever recorded.                    In the last decade, an average of 252 billion tons of      Antarctic      ice melted per year. In Greenland,      an average 280 billion tons of ice melted per year - a      seven-fold increase from the 1990s.         Combined, ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica contain more    than 99% of the planet's fresh water.        In 2019 we saw what The World Meteorological Organization    called
The average temperature over the 20th century was 30.12 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the only month of the year with a sub-freezing average temperature. 

In the past three decades, NOAA reported that January temperatures have warmed significantly.

"Averaged over the entire historical record (1895-2020), January temperature has increased by 0.2 degrees F per decade," NOAA climate.gov said. "But in reality, virtually all of that change has come in the past 30 years."

With the exception of one month of the five colder-than-average Januarys, the average January temperature from 1991-2020 was recorded just above freezing at 32.35 degrees F.
