January was the warmest on record, NOAA says, and above-average temperatures are likely to continue through the rest of 2020-CNN

`` January 2020 beats the record of January 2016, the warmest January so far, by 0.02 degrees and set a new record high, '' said the United States Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on February 13, 2020. It was announced.

According to the NOAA, out of observation records for the past 1681 months (about 140 years), the difference between the monthly average temperature and the actual temperature was larger than January 2020 in December 2015 and February 2016.・ It is said that there are only three times in March of the same year. `` The 2016 record was triggered by the El Nino phenomenon , but the January 2020 record is noteworthy in that high temperatures were observed without the effects of the El Nino phenomenon, '' the NOAA noted. I am.

The EU Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), as well as the NOAA, said, 'The average temperature in January 2020 was 0.77 degrees warmer than the average temperature in January 1981-2010. Slightly above the warmest January record in January. '

In the following graph released at the same time, the black line shows how much each month from January 1979 to January 2020 differs from the monthly average temperature from 1981 to 2010 Is for January of each year. Looking at the growth of the red line around 2000, it can be seen that the difference from the average temperature is increasing.

In particular, temperatures in Europe and Russia are unusually high, with average temperatures across Europe in January 2020 being 3.1 degrees higher than the average temperature in January 1981-2010, as well as in many other regions across Norway and Russia. The average temperature in January from 1981 to 2010 was 6 degrees higher than January.

Based on observations of rising global temperatures, the

National Center for Environmental Information (NCEI) continued to release predictions that ` ` 2020 is very likely to be in the top five of the warmest years on record ''. It suggested that the high temperature situation would continue.

On the other hand, the only exception is the state of Alaska in the United States. The state of Alaska in January 2020 was the coldest since January 2012, and it was the 13th coldest in the record, the same temperature as January 1970.

The National Weather Service Anchorage branch in Anchorage, Alaska said on Twitter, “I did it! For the first time in January 2020, it has been below the average temperature for the 22 consecutive months. If you feel cold in January ... that's the right answer! '
