January 2013 was 9th Warmest on Record

Recently released analysis by NOAA scientists at the National Climatic Data Center reveals that January 2013 was the 9th warmest on record, dating back to 1880. This image, using data from NCDC’s Global Historical Climatology Network, shows areas of warmer (red) and cooler (blue) than normal temperatures. Most areas of the world experienced higher-than-average monthly temperatures, including Alaska, the Eastern U.S., southern Greenland and Australia. Meanwhile, far northwestern and central Canada, the western United States, and a large swath of northern Eurasia were most notably below average.
