Record setting October

(Slate::Bad Astronomy) – Phil Plait:

2015 has been a hot one. The hottest, in fact: It’s a cinch to be the hottest year on record. Several months this year have been the hottest of those months on record — looking at each month since 1880, 2015 had the hottest February on record, as well as the hottest March, May, June, July, August, and September.

We can now add October to that list, with a vengeance: It blows any previous October over the past 135 years out of the water, about 0.2° C hotter than the previous record holder… which was October of last year, in 2014.
