Warmest 12 Months On Record For The US!

The lower 48 states just set a new record for the warmest 12 month period since record keeping began back in 1895!

The NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) reports the average temperature in June for the contiguous US was 71.2 degrees. That's a full two degrees above the 20th century average.

The heat wave baking most of the country in the second half of June helped break or tie 170 all time high temperature records.

Check out all the extreme weather events from last month alone!
