There is no doubt left about the fact that it is getting hotter and hotter every single year, as 2015 brings the hottest may in history.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has recently conducted a report that has revealed that this year’s merry month of May has broken all the records out there in regards to high temperatures.
Unfortunately, while 2015’s May will hold the record for the hottest in recent history, it all of 2015 that comes with abnormally high temperatures. This spring has proven to be much warmer than past ones all across the globe.
According to NOAA’s report, all the complete five months in 2015 that we have seen so far are among the hottest ever registered. While May has broken the preexisting record by a sizable difference, March has managed to earn the first place as well, making it the warmest March that we have seen.
The runner-ups were January and February, that were considered the second warmest after NOAA’s considerable research. April was declared the fourth warmest up to date, making it the least noticeably warm month that 2015 has seen until now.
During May, the planet has seen a 1.57 degrees Fahrenheit difference from the average temperature that has been registered during the 20th century. Furthermore, there was a 0.14 degrees difference between this year’s month of May and last year’s. And while this might not seem as such a sizable difference, it represents the mean temperature between land surface and oceanic surface.
It is to be expected that 2015’s summer will follow on the same pattern, which means that we are in for a very hot summer this year. Therefore, it is advisable that people are prepared to face the heat. This implies that they use protective measures to keep safe from the hot sizzling sun.
Wearing the proper clothes, applying sunscreen and making sure that a bottle of water always makes its way into the daily bad are the main protective measures that need to be employed on a daily basis.
Furthermore, all unnecessary outings in the middle of the day, when the temperatures reach the highest limits need to be avoided, especially by people who are most sensitive to the heat. This risk group includes the elderly, the very young, people who find themselves in poor health condition, as the heat can be extremely dangerous for people with an already weakened body.
It remains to be seen how 2015’s summer will turn out, but hopefully, the next months will not be breaking any records, as these are titles that should be left to the past, for all of out well being.
