The June 2019 was the hottest June in the entire history of weather observations

Last month was the hottest June in the entire history of weather observations.

Data provided by the service of the Copernicus Climate Change (C3S), led by the European centre for medium-range weather forecasts showed that the global average temperature in June 2019 was the highest in the entire history of observations (with data for June of all years of observation).

So, the average European temperature was more than 2 °C above normal, and in most parts of France, Germany and Northern Spain on 6-10 °C above normal, said in C3S.

The global average temperature in the world was approximately 0.1 °C higher than in June 2016, which previously held the palm.

In the last days of June in France was recorded the highest temperature in the history of meteorological observations in the country (45,9 °C). In Spain, the heat of 40 °C led to large-scale forest fires.

Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic also recorded their highest temperature for June last week.

In C3S acknowledged that it is difficult to directly link this «heat wave» with climate change, but noted that such extreme weather events will become more common due to global warming.

«We knew that June was very hot in Europe, but this study shows that temperature records were not just beaten. They were destroyed, ‘ said Professor Hannah Klock, a researcher of natural hazards at the University of reading (England). — «Waves» of heat occur in any climate, but their likelihood increases because of climate change. Greenhouse gases continue to accumulate, and the Earth is getting hotter, as predicted by scientists for decades».
