NOAA: Assessing the Global Climate, August 2019

August Second Hottest Month Ever

Assessing the Global Climate in August 2019,
NOAA, September 16, 2019.


Second Warmest August in Historical Record

August: The Second Hottest for August in the 1880–2019 Record; The Differences
August 2019 against averages from 1880 to 2019.
Global Status
"The August temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.66°F above the 20th century average of 60.1°F and tied with 2015 and 2017 as the second highest for August in the 1880–2019 record. The five warmest Augusts have all occurred since 2014. August 2016 is the warmest August on record with a global land and ocean surface temperature departure from average of 1.76°F." Big Map.

Long Series of Records

"The June–August 2019 temperature was also second highest and the January–August temperature was the third highest such period on record."

2.05°F Above 20th Century August Average of 56.9°F!!

An "OMG"-Level of Heating

Highest SST on Record for August (as was July…)
"...1.51°F above the 20th century monthly average of 61.4°F, the highest global ocean temperature for August on record. This value surpassed the previous record set in 2016 by 0.04°F."

Second Smallest Antarctic Sea Ice on Record for August
"…second smallest in the 41-year record at 838,000 square miles (30.1 percent) below the 1981–2010 average, according to an analysis by the National Snow and Ice Data Center using data from NOAA and NASA. The record smallest August Arctic sea ice extent was set in 2012 at 34.4% below average."

Climate Anomalies and Events, August 2019
August 2019 Global Weather Anomalies
Very Hot North Pacific Ocean
"The most notable warm surface temperature departures from average during June–August 2019 were present across much of the high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, specifically across the North Pacific Ocean, the Bering Sea, western Alaska, northern Canada, central Europe and north-central Russia. The temperature departures from average in these locations were at least +2.7°F or higher." Big Map.

13th warmest August for US, a cool August overall, compared with the previous few years.

Hawaii, S. America, Africa, and Europe all running at record-level temps.
