Summer swelter: Earth just had its hottest June on record

Last month was the Earth's hottest June ever record, federal climate scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday.

It beat out 2016 for the hottest June with records going back to 1880.

The warmth was most pronounced in Europe, where a record-shattering heat wave baked much of the continent for several days at the end of the month. France set its all-time heat record of 114.6 degrees, while dozens of other June heat records were set in Spain, Germany and Switzerland, NOAA said.

Austria had its warmest June since records there began in 1767 when Mozart was an 11-year-old child prodigy.

In addition to Europe, record warm temperatures during June 2019 were present across parts of Asia, Africa, and South America. No land or ocean areas had record cold June temperatures, NOAA said.

Berkeley Earth lead scientist Robert Rohde estimated 41 countries may have set their record warmest June, including Bangladesh, Hungary, Iraq, Nicaragua, the Philippines and Turkey, the Weather Channel reported.

Overall, last month, the planet was about 1.71 degrees warmer than an average June. Earth's average temperature in June is 59.9 degrees.

June 2019 also marked the 414th consecutive month that the planet's temperature was warmer-than-average, NOAA said. That dates back to 1984, during the first Reagan Administration.
