According to a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report, “the combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for March 2013 tied with 2006 as the 10th warmest on record, at 0.58°C (1.04°F) above the 20th century average of 12.3°C (54.1°F).”  That makes March 2013 the 337th consecutive month with temperatures above the 2oth century average.

And so, despite the fact that North America had a rather cold and snowy March, the global warming trend continues.  Here is a map that shows the weather and climate highlights for the month of March 2013.

    JP!

    I actually just wanted to drop by and say hello. Haven’t heard anything out of you for a while now – I hope all is well.

      Hi Lucinda,

      All is good. The last three months have been very challenging: my father was operated on to remove two tumours, I’ve begun working on my thesis, and I just don’t have the time in the day to work on the blog!

      But thank you for stopping by and thank you for your concern :)
