Hot Weather

According to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the planet saw its warmest July on record “by a long shot” and likely its warmest month in 174 years of record-keeping.

Warmest Weather

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported on Monday that it was the warmest July on record in 174 years.

July, which is typically the hottest month of the year, was ‘very likely the warmest month in history since at least 1850’,experts said in a joint briefing by NOAA and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The latest in a string of alarming climate anomalies, including record-warm ocean temperatures, the new milestone comes after what was the hottest June in recorded history.

According to Sarah Kapnick, last month was way hotter than any other July for the past decades, making it the warmest July on record.

She added on Monday in a news briefing that July is the typical hottest month of each year, however, this 2023 is the warmest July on record at least since 1850.

Together, NASA and NOAA discovered that the average global surface temperature for the past month was 2.02 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the norm for the 20th century.

According to NOAA, this was the warmest July on record since the average month’s temperature was reported that was 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, or 1 degree Celsius, higher than the long-term normal.

It is almost guaranteed that 2023 will be among the warmest years and its hottest month to be the warmest July on record since El Niño in the Pacific Ocean is expected to last into the winter.

According to Gavin Schmidt, the effects of that El Niño are expected to worsen over time, peaking in 2024, according to our predictions.

Globally, July 2023 broke the 174-year NOAA warmest July on record. The period from January to July saw the third-warmest worldwide surface temperature on record.

The year 2023 will almost certainly (> 99.0%) rank among the five warmest years on record, with a roughly 50% chance that it would rank as the warmest year ever, according to NCEI’s Global Annual Temperature Outlook and data as of July.

The warmest July on record was experienced in South America, Africa, and Asia, respectively. 3.94°F (2.19°C) was South America’s biggest monthly temperature anomaly on record.

The second-warmest July on record for North America and the eighth-hottest July on record for Europe.

Oceania experienced its eleventh warmest July on record. The Caribbean Islands and the Gulf of Mexico both saw the warmest July on record.

The warmest July on record also occurred in the Atlantic “Main Development Region,” a section of the tropical Atlantic Ocean basin that stretches from offshore of Africa’s west coast to the westernmost reaches of the Caribbean Sea and is closely monitored for potential Atlantic tropical system development.

Parts of the central United States and Canada, Greenland, western Russia, Pakistan and northern India, western Oceania, southern Africa, and Antarctica all experienced close to below-average temperatures.

Over portions of the central-eastern and southeastern Pacific, the Arctic Ocean, and the southeastern Indian Ocean, sea surface temperatures were close to below average.

Only 1% of the earth’s surface experienced a record-breaking chilly July.

The extreme heat should act as a alarming wake-up call for civilization. We must acknowledge our shared obligation to combat climate change in order to preserve our world for future generations.
