May 2007 – Fourth Warmest on Record

leave a comment »

This past May was the fourth warmest ever recorded (since the late 1800’s, anyway). Jeff Masters, over at Weather Underground, has details. From his article:

May 2007 was the fourth warmest May for the globe on record, and the period January – May of 2007 was tied with 1998 for the warmest such period ever, according to statistics released by the National Climatic Data Center. The global average temperature for May was +0.53°C (+0.95°F) above the 20th century mean. Over land, May global temperatures were the warmest ever measured, the second straight month that has happened. Ocean temperatures were a bit cooler (ninth warmest on record), thanks to the cooling associated with the disappearance of the winter El Niño event. The global temperature record goes back 128 years.
