June 2015 hottest on record, NOAA says

This year likely to be hottest since records began in 1880

(ANSA) - Rome, July 21 - Last month was the hottest June since records began in 1880, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said on Tuesday.
    Likewise, the first six months of the year were the hottest on record and NOAA said the same is likely to be true of the whole of 2015. In June the average global temperature was 16.33 degrees, 0.88 degrees above the 20th century average and 0.12 degrees higher than the previous record set in June 2014. This year NOAA meteorologists predict a strengthening El Nino, making it "almost impossible that 2015 won't be the hottest year on record".
