Another Hot January

Climate Central has this article, on recent data from NOAA. My summary? It is now normal for the weather to be abnormal.

No one under the age of 28 has ever experienced a month in which global average surface temperatures were cooler-than-normal.

January of 2013 continued the unbroken string of months with above-average global surface temperatures, tying with 1995 as the ninth-warmest such month on record since instrument records began in 1880, NOAA said on Thursday. This marked the 335th straight month above the 20th century average, and the 37th straight warmer-than-average January.

The last cooler-than-average January occurred in 1976, and the last cooler-than-average month occurred in February 1985.
