Record warm November

November 2013 was the warmest November on record globally for land and ocean combined, according to NASA.

The NASA record goes back to 1880.

Despite the cold across much of Canada and the eastern U.S., last month was unusually mild across much of Asia, Europe and the Antarctic.

November 2013 averaged 0.77 degrees C. (1.39 F.) above the 1951-1980 mean, according to the NASA GISS dataset.

November 2010 is now the second warmest on record with a temperature anomaly of +0.75 C followed by November of 2009 with +0.72 C.
