March Heat Broke 15,000 Records; Weather Could Have Deadly Effects – Technology – The Atlantic Wire

10 Apr

March’s warm weather broke a lot of records. Science has confirmed what we all already knew (and feared?), last month was the warmest since 1895, which is as far as the record goes back. “The average temperature of 51.1°F was 8.6 degrees above the 20th century average for March and 0.5°F warmer than the previous warmest March in 1910,” explains the research report. In addition, every single state had at least one day of record breaking temps and over the 31 days, 7,755 daytime records and 7,517 nighttime records were broken across the country. Alaska, on the other hand, not included in this tally because it does not fall in the contiguous U.S., had its 10th coldest on record, contributing to the climate change extreme weather theory.
