NOAA Reports that June 2016 was Another Record-Breaker

It's official: June of 2016 broke yet another global temperature record, coming in as the hottest June on record since global temperatures were first recorded in 1880, beating the previous record-holder's departure from the norm, June 2015, by 0.02ºC (0.04ºF). This also marks the 14th consecutive record-breaking month, with global temperatures being 0.90ºC (1.62ºF) above the 20th century average.
