It was the warmest April on record for the globe

2 min read

WASHINGTON — April marked the 11th consecutive month of record-breaking global warmth according to data from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information.

The average temperature for the globe, accounting for land and sea, was 2.38 degrees F above the 20th-century average of 56.7 degrees F. Some of the most notable above-average temperatures were in South America where the region experienced its warmest April on record and in Europe which had its second warmest April for the books.

Much of Australia, Scandinavia, and northwest Russia were cooler than average.

So how did we stack up here in D.C.?

While the month started off cool for about the first week of April, temperatures turned warmer than average through the middle part of the month. And then we closed on April on a very warm note. But it was almost an even split of days above and below average. 

We had 13 days with average temperatures below average and 17 above. The days that were below average were only about 2 – 7 degrees cooler than normal while the days that were above average were anywhere from 3 – 13 degrees warmer than normal. That put us 2.3 degrees above average for our monthly average temperature and landed us in 9th place for the warmest April on record.
