Meteorologist Al Roker of NBC News, a CCNow partner, reported today that this past June was the hottest ever recorded and 2020 is on track to be the second hottest ever, year to date.
“June 2020 is the 426th consecutive month above average, that’s 35 years. Florida is on track for it’s hottest year on record. The Gulf of Mexico, the warmest January to June period ever. So the heat continues to build as far as our climate is concerned,” said Roker, who is head of NBC News’ Climate Unit.
Al Roker and NBC demonstrate how all weather forecasts can responsibly make the climate connection to this summer’s record heat—bravo!
