July was Earth’s hottest month in at least 135 years of record keeping according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

July’s average temperature was 16.5 Celsius, beating the previous global mark set in 1998 and 2010 by about 0.07 C.

Records go back to 1880 but nine of the 10 hottest months have happened since 2005.

One of the exceptions was Atlantic Canada where the Maritimes had a cooler than normal July while Newfoundland was much colder than average.
