*April marks 12th consecutive month of record warmth for globe*

*May 18, 2016*

*The heat goes on — and so do the records.*

*April 2016 was record warm for the month, rounding out one full year of
record-breaking monthly temperatures for the globe. This is the longest
such balmy streak in the 137-year record, which dates back to 1880.  *

*For April, the average global temperature was 1.98 degrees F above the
20th-century average of 56.7 degrees F, according to scientists from
NOAA’s **National Centers for Environmental Information*
<https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/>*. This temperature departure from average was
not only the highest for the month of April in the 1880-2016 record, but
also the fourth-highest among all months on record.*
