Last Month Was The Hottest May On Record — Again
May 2015 set another record for the hottest May ever recorded, as well as the hottest spring and hottest first five months of the year.
Last month was officially the hottest May on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
NOAA tracked temperatures 1.57 degrees Fahrenheit above the worldwide average of 58.6 degrees.
NOAA says the heat is thanks at least in part to El Nino. The cyclical warming of the eastern Pacific Ocean can lead to what we're seeing now: record temperatures and record rainfall. (Video via NOAA)
In fact, according to U.N. data, 14 of the 15 hottest years on record have all come in the 21st century, and the heating trend is expected to continue.
