July 2019 is now officially the hottest month on record, since record-keeping began 140 years ago.
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says July was 0.95 degrees Celsius warmer than the 20th century average of 15.8C in that month.
And, June of this year had already set a sizzling record for that month over the past 140 years.
Phoenix hit a high temperature of 110 degrees or higher, 11 times in July.
Furthermore, because July is usually the warmest month globally, this means that July 2019 wasn't only the hottest July ever recorded, but also the hottest month in general, ever recorded. Eek. NASA's records date back to 1880. In the Arctic in July, ice was recorded as being 19.8 percent lower than average.
These findings are consistent with those from the European Union's Copernicus Climate Change Service, released earlier this month.
'Last month was also the 43rd consecutive July and 415th consecutive month with above-average global temperatures'.

This graph illustrates the global land and ocean temperatures during the month of July dating back to 1880.
Berkeley Earth's analysis found that 2019 is unlikely to set a new record for the warmest year, largely because the January through May period was colder than the same period in 2016.
In the U.S.it is probably hard for us to believe July 2019 was the warmest month on record.
"Nine of the 10 hottest Julys have occurred since 2005-with the last five years ranking as the five hottest", the NOAA said, based on its data from weather stations, ship reports, and buoys.
Scientists also recorded record-low levels of sea ice in the coldest parts of the world.
That's about 36 percent more than scientists expect in an average year. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, if the rate of sea ice loss going forward occurs at the same pace as it did in most recent years, then this year will go down in the record books as having the second lowest sea ice extent.
