The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released its Global Summary Information for November 2015, stating that is was the warmest November in history between 1880 to 2015, an average of 135 years.

NOAA disclosed that the average land and ocean surface temperature for November 2015 was 1.75°F (0.97°C) higher than the average for the 20th century, and exceeding the 2013 record by 0.27°F (0.15°C). Incidentally, this is the 7th consecutive month that global temperature record has been broken on a monthly basis.

Furthermore, the September-November 2015 average temperature for land and ocean surfaces globally was 1.73°F (0.96°C) higher than the 20th century average, surpassing the 2014 record by 0.38°F (0.21°C) and being the highest for the period in the 1880-2015 record.

For the year-to-date or January-November 2015 period, 1.57°F (0.87°C) was the reading for year-to-date temperature across ocean surfaces and global land, and this is above the 2014 record by 0.25°F (0.14°C) and highest for January-November in the 1880-2015 record.
