World Meteorological Organization: Warmest decade drawing to a close

Dec 30, 2020

The end of 2020 marks the end of the warmest decade on record (2011-2020), according to the World Meteorological Organization. This year is still likely to be one of the top three hottest years on record, even matching 2016, the hottest year on record. Although La Nina will generally cool the world, 2020 will remain unusually hot and affect weather patterns in many parts of the world, the WMO said.

Based on five global temperature databases, the WMO will release comprehensive temperature data for 2020 in January. This information will be included in the final report on the state of the climate for 2020, to be released in March next year, and will include specific information on climate impacts. The US Weather Service’s global temperature forecast for 2021 suggests that next year will be one of the hottest years, despite the temporary cooling of La Nina, which is usually strongest in the second year of activity.
