It’s Been Hot!


2016/10/01


The mid-south summer has been brutally hot again this year, as folks who spend any amount of time outside can attest. It didn’t just feel hot – as some weathercasters like to say – it actually was hotter than usual this summer.

On September 12, 2016, NASA announced that “August 2016 was the warmest August in 136 years of modern record keeping, according to a monthly analysis of global temperatures by scientists as NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). Although the seasonal temperature cycle typically peaks in July, August 2016 tied with July 2016 for the warmest month ever recorded.

“The record warm August continued a streak of 11 consecutive months (dating to October 2015) that have set new monthly temperature records. The analysis by the GISS team is assembled from publicly available data acquired by about 6,300 meteorological stations around the world, ship- and buoy-based instruments measuring sea surface temperature, and Antarctic research stations. The modern global temperature record begins around 1880 because previous observations didn’t cover enough of the planet.”

In fact, NASA data show that the first six months of 2016 set a record as the warmest half-year on record, “with an average temperature 1.3 degrees Celsius (2.4 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than the late nineteenth century.”
