By 2019, it is set to be the second-or third-hottest year on record, according to newly released data from the U.S. government.

According to a report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the global land and sea surface temperature departures from average for October of 2019, the second-highest for the month of October, dates from the 1880s.

“The year-to-date, the temperature in 2019, it was also the second warmest on record for the January–October period,” NOAA added.

IN 2018, THE FOURTH-WARMEST YEAR YET, SAYS NASA

“On the basis of the current deviations and the historical annual global temperature measurements to show that it is virtually certain that the year 2019 will be a top-10 of the year, in line with a strong tendency since 1988 and for the past few years, in the first instance, to be ranked as one of the top-10 of the year,” NOAA added. There is a 99.9% chance of 2019 is going to be in the top 10, and top 5 warmest years ever, but it is less than a 0.01-percent chance that it is going to be in the middle.

According to both NOAA and NASA, in 2016, it was the warmest year on record.

NOAA and NASA tracks global temperatures are, in different ways, according to the Washington Post. NOAA leaves to the different parts of the Arctic, from the data, whereas NASA does not.

As an agency of the government, it is noted that the average global land and ocean surface temperature last month was 1.76 degrees above the 20th century average of 57.1 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, it was 0.11 degrees celsius which is the warmest October ever, who happened to be at the end of 2015.

“The 10 warmest Octobers have all occurred since 2003; however, the five warmest Octobers have all taken place since 2015,” NOAA wrote in a statement on its website.

There are a number of other points of interest from the report:

  • October, 2019, “the 43rd consecutive October and the 418th consecutive month, with temperatures that, at least in name) above the 20th century average.”
  • “In the Northern Hemisphere and October in the land and ocean surface temperature departure from average of +2.18 degrees Fahrenheit, related with 2015 as the warmest October on record.” In the Southern Hemisphere, on land and in the sea surface temperature departure from average was the third-warmest on record, at 1.33°F) above average, behind, 2015, and 2018.
  • The warm temperatures were seen in much of the world, including parts of the North and to the West by the Pacific Ocean, and the north-east of Canada, as well as scattered parts of the Southern Atlantic Ocean, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, the Indian Ocean, and South America. “Only in a very small area in the western contiguous U.S., was a record-cold October temperatures,” NOAA added.
