Temperatures in March around the world were of the same order as in 2017 and 2019, which are among the warmest March ever recorded behind the record of March 2016, according to the European service Copernicus on climate change.
“Global temperatures were at the same level as in 2017 and 2019, the second and third hottest months of March,” Copernicus said in a statement on Monday.
In Europe, if temperatures were close to or just below the averages recorded between 1981 and 2010 in the west, they were “much higher around the Baltic Sea and in the East”
They have also been well above average “in much of Russia and many regions in Asia, eastern and western United States, Mexico, southern South America , in Central America and western Australia “, explains Copernicus.
However, it was colder in northern and western Canada, Greenland, the Svalbard Archipelago in Norway and eastern Antarctica.
