After 16 consecutive months of record-breaking global average temperatures, the month of September, 2016, came in merely as the second-highest in the 137-year record, 0.04°C (0.07°F) cooler than the current record holder, September 2015.
While we might congratulate last September for not being quite as ambitious as the sixteen months that preceded it, second place still means that the month came in at 0.86°C (1.55°F) above the 20th century average of 15.0°C (59.0°F). This is slightly down from August’s monthly record, of which marked a departure of 0.92°C (1.66°F) above the 20th century average of 15.6°C (60.1°F).
