Not only did Canadians feel the heat last month, but June 2010 was reported as the warmest June on record worldwide.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that warmer than average temperatures were felt across nearly all continents.

Officials say that the combination of land and sea anomalies ranked this June above the June of 2005, which was the last warmest June on record.

Meteorologists say we can credit some of this warmth to El Nino, characterized by slightly warmer ocean temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean that cause a shift in the global weather patterns.
