August was the second-warmest August since global record keeping began in , NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, or NCEI, reported September
The month was just degrees Celsius behind the record set in August NASA rated the month as the third-warmest August on record, and the Japan Meteorological Agency rated it as the fourth-warmest August on record.
Minor differences in rankings often occur among various research groups, the result of the different techniques they use to handle data-sparse regions such as the Arctic.
The eight months of January through August were degrees Celsius (°F) above the 20th-century average, NCEI said. This ranks as the second-warmest such period on record, only degrees Celsius (°F) behind the record set in According to NCEI’s annual temperature outlook, the year has more than a % chance to rank among the five warmest years on record. If so, calendar years through would be the seven warmest years on record.
The outlook finds that has a 40% chance of displacing as the warmest year on record. These odds are based on statistical relationships rather than unfolding weather and climate events. The La Niña event now in progress (see below) will make it less likely that will break the record.
Global temperature records are more likely to be set during the peak of the solar cycle and during strong El Niño events, when the extra heat from the tropical Pacific Ocean is given up to the atmosphere. The remarkable warmth of has come in the absence of a strong El Niño event and during the minimum of one of the weakest year solar cycles in the past century, underscoring the dominant role of human-caused global warming in heating our planet.
Global ocean temperatures during August were the second-warmest on record, and global land temperatures the third-warmest on record. Global satellite-measured temperatures in August for the lowest eight kilometers of the atmosphere were the third-warmest or warmest in the year record, according to the University of Alabama Huntsville and Remote Sensing Systems, respectively.
For the Northern Hemisphere, the three-month summer period of June, July, and August ranked as the warmest summer on record. The Caribbean region had its second-warmest summer on record, and North America and the globe as a whole, their third-warmest. Europe had its fourth-warmest, Africa, Asia, and Oceania their sixth-warmest June-July-August period on record.
Hottest reliably measured temperature in world recorded history in August
Death Valley, California, hit an astonishing degrees Fahrenheit (°C) at p.m. PDT, August 16, , at the Furnace Creek Visitor’s Center. This reading was rounded to degrees Fahrenheit in the daily summary from NOAA.
According to weather records expert Christopher Burt, who wrote the comprehensive weather records book “Extreme Weather,” and Maximiliano Herrera, who tweets under the Twitter handle, Extreme Temperatures Around the World, the observation may be the hottest reliably recorded temperature in world history, breaking the degrees Fahrenheit readings at Death Valley in and in Kuwait in The World Meteorological Organization is conducting a review of the site’s observing equipment. “If the observation passes an investigation (instrument calibration, etc.) then, yes, this is a new reliably measured global extreme heat record,” Burt wrote by email. However, the official world record will remain a degrees Fahrenheit measurement taken at Death Valley on July 10, , a record widely viewed as bogus.
Climatologist William Reid, an expert on Death Valley meteorology who has written extensively about the old bogus degree record, wrote that his early thinking is that the degree reading on August 16 was authentic, but he cautioned that an increase in vegetation and structures built in the vicinity of the Furnace Creek site in recent decades has allowed the station to record hotter temperatures.
“An increase in vegetation and some man-made structures not too far south of the station have resulted in poorer ventilation through the station area. Since the station is above a bare and sandy surface, hot air along the ground during afternoon sunshine is less effectively mixed away from the instrumentation. The result is higher temperature readings during the afternoon comparably,” Reid wrote. “I figure that most summer maximums at Death Valley today are a couple of degrees higher because of the poorer station exposure. A day that hits degrees today probably would have only been as high as degrees before ”
Eight billion-dollar weather disasters in August ; 28 for the year so far
Eight billion-dollar weather-related disasters hit the Earth last month, according to the August Catastrophe Report from insurance broker Aon. Details on each of those eight events follow.
– Torrential downpours continued to affect China in August, killing 92 people and damaging or destroying , houses. This brings the total damage between June 1 and August 31 from China’s monsoon flooding to $28 billion, with deaths. According to statistics from EM-DAT, the international disaster database, this ranks as the third-most expensive non-U.S. weather disaster since accurate records began in
An August study published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, “Each °C of Warming Increases Annual Flood Losses in China by More than US$60 Billion,” found that annual average flood losses in China during the period were $ billion ( dollars), which was % of China’s GDP. Annual flood losses increased to $ billion annually during the period The study predicted that each additional degree Celsius of global warming will increase China flood losses by $60 billion per year.
– Heavy monsoon rains severely affected 10 states in India in August, killing people and causing $1 billion in damage. The total death toll from this year’s monsoon floods is 1,, with economic losses of over $2 billion. This year’s total monsoon rainfall across India was running % above average as of September 14, according to the India Meteorological Department.
– Typhoon Hagupit made landfall near the Yueqing City of Zhejiang province in China on August 3 as a category 1 storm with 80 mph winds, causing widespread damage in eastern China. Hagupit also impacted Taipei in northern Taiwan where nearly 2, houses were damaged and one person was killed. Total damage in China and Taiwan was estimated at $ billion.
Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Bahamas
– Hurricane Isaias, after bringing damaging flooding to Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the Bahamas, made landfall near Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, on August 3 as a strengthening Category 1 hurricane with 85 mph winds. Isaias brought widespread wind and flood damage from the Carolinas into New England and spawned at least 39 confirmed tornadoes, including a deadly EF3 in North Carolina. At least million homes and businesses lost power in the continental U.S., and another , lost power in Puerto Rico. Total economic losses in the continental U.S. were estimated at $5 billion, and 15 deaths were blamed on the storm. An additional $ million in damage occurred in the Caribbean and Canada, with three deaths.
– A severe weather outbreak from August in the U.S. Midwest featured a violent derecho that caused severe damage in Iowa and Illinois, killing four and causing $ billion in damage. The derecho, which had a peak wind gust of mph, was responsible for $5 billion of the damage.
– Hurricane Laura made landfall as a category 4 storm with mph winds in Southwest Louisiana on August 27, killing 33 people and causing over $10 billion in damage. Catastrophic impacts occurred in Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes – including the City of Lake Charles – due to wind gusts over mph, storm surge, and inland flooding.
– Record heat, low humidity, and widespread dry lightning spawned nearly 1, fires in California during the month of August, killing eight people and causing well over $1 billion in damage.
– Drought conditions over much of the Western U.S. worsened in August, bringing total drought damages in the nation to $1 billion for the year.
Through the end of August, Earth had 28 billion-dollar weather disasters, including 16 in the U.S. (the U.S. record is 20, set in ). The Australian wildfires span the boundary between and may end up being classified as a disaster rather than a disaster.
Here is the list of billion-dollar weather disasters through August, listed by dollars of damage, according to Aon:

A La Niña advisory issued
NOAA issued the year’s first La Niña advisory in its September 10 monthly discussion of the state of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation, or ENSO.
Over the past month, sea surface temperatures in the benchmark Niño region of the eastern tropical Pacific (5°N-5°S, °W°W) were degrees Celsius below average, with degrees below-average being the threshold for weak La Niña conditions. The threshold for moderate La Niña conditions is degrees Celsius below-average .
Forecasters at NOAA and at Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society favor La Niña conditions to continue through the winter (75% chance).
La Niña conditions favor active Atlantic hurricane seasons with higher-than-average U.S. landfalling hurricane activity, particularly along the U.S. East Coast north of Florida. Earth’s last La Niña event occurred between September and March and was a weak one. That said, the La Niña Atlantic hurricane season of was an exceptionally brutal one, with three destructive hurricanes that ranked in the top five for most expensive weather-related disasters in world history: Harvey ($ billion), Maria ($92 billion) and Irma ($51 billion).
Arctic sea ice: third-lowest August extent on record, now close to all-time minimum
Arctic sea ice extent during August was the third-lowest in the year satellite record, behind and , according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. But by August 23, Arctic sea ice extent fell below the mark, and was at the second-lowest extent on record between August 23 and September
The all-time record for the lowest annual minimum is million square kilometers, set on September 17, As of September 14, , the sea ice extent appeared to be bottoming out, at million square kilometers, making it likely that will continue to hold the record for lowest sea ice extent.
The sea ice was particularly scant along Russia’s Siberian coast, where the Northern Sea route has been open to ice-free navigation since mid-July. In the Canadian Arctic, the southern branch of the Northwest Passage (famed explorer Roald Amundsen’s route) was largely open, but some ice remained.
Antarctic sea ice extent in August was near-average.
Greenland’s summer: relatively normal for surface ice loss, but huge calving event
An excellent September 4 post at Carbon Brief, “How the Greenland ice sheet fared in ,” explained that, “unlike in , Greenland has actually had a relatively ‘normal’ year with regard to ice changes at its surface. Yet losses via the breaking off of icebergs remain at the high end compared to the early years of the satellite record, which stretches back to the late s.”
One casualty of years of above-average temperatures in northeast Greenland occurred this summer for the Arctic’s largest floating ice shelf, part of the Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden Glacier called Spalte Glacier. The glacier calved a huge chunk of ice about twice the size of Manhattan Island (see the photos here).
“We should be very concerned about what appears to be progressive disintegration at the Arctic’s largest remaining ice shelf, because upstream it is the only major Greenland ice sheet ice stream, draining 16% of the inland ice reservoir,” said professor Jason Box from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland. (Kudos to Steve Gregory for flagging this event)

August 20 weather forecast: Warmer weather expected
(Thursday, August 20th ) After a pretty chilly morning, summer is slowly making a comeback for the end of the week and especially this weekend.
Thursday and the end of the week high pressure will slide to our east.
This puts the Southern Tier on the backside (the warmer side) of the high.
This will help warm us back up into the 80s by Friday and especially this weekend.
Also, we are not expecting any rain around Thursday through Saturday.
Our next decent shot of rain doesn’t look to come until Sunday into the start of next week.
Chances for rain are quite scattered in nature too.
Thursday: A mix of sun and clouds. High near
Thursday Night: Mainly clear and cool. Low Wind: WNW mph.
Friday: Mostly sunny. High low 80s.
Saturday: Mostly sunny. High mid 80s.
