NOAA: July 2019 was the Hottest Month on Record

Recommended Posts

From the NOAA:

The average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees F above the 20th-century average of 60.4 degrees, making it the hottest July in the 140-year record, according to scientists at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information. The previous hottest month on record was July 2016.

Nine of the 10 hottest Julys have occurred since 2005 -- with the last five years ranking as the five hottest. Last month was also the 43rd consecutive July and 415th consecutive month with above-average global temperatures.

UAH only came in at +0.38C, however, but they tend to run low.

It should be noted that UAH 5.6, which was discontinued in 2017, had a better fit with the other climate datasets than 6.0. Indeed, running a regression analysis to estimate the value for 5.6 (in relation to GISS), one would have had a July 2019 value of +0.47. That would have surpassed the July 2016 record of +0.45 on that version. That outcome would be consistent with the findings from the GISS, NCDC, Berkeley, and Copernicus datasets. UAH 6.0 has consistently been a cold outlier.

UAH 6.0 is a flawed product.
