June 2019 Monthly Global Temperature Anomalies

While many people in the continuous United States saw average temperatures in the month of June 2019, the average global temperature in June was 1.71 degrees F above the 20th-century average of 59.9 degrees. This makes June 2019 the hottest June in the 140-year record. Nine of the 10 hottest Junes have occurred since 2010. Last month also was the 43rd consecutive June and 414th consecutive month with above-average global temperatures. This visual of the GISTEMP anomalies for June of 2019 show the United States and then zooms out to show the global picture. Temperature anomalies indicate how much warmer (red) or colder(blue) it is than normal for a particular place and time. For the GISS analysis, normal always means the average over the 30-year period 1951-1980 for that place and time of year.
