March 2024 was the tenth straight hottest month on record, according to a report from the European Union climate agency Copernicus. That’s right! Each of the last ten months has set a record for high temperatures. Climate Change is real.

Everyone, everywhere, has noticed that every year they report on higher than average temperatures. And then there are all of the crazy weather patterns out there. In Israel, for example, instead of having rainfall evenly spread out through the winter months the country now sees frequent barrages of hard rainfall and massive storms.

Samantha Burgess, the deputy director of Copernicus Climate Change Service, told Voice of America, “We need more ambitious global action to ensure that we can get to net zero as soon as possible.”

Copernicus reported that March 2024 was warmer globally than any previous March in the data record, with an average ERA5 surface air temperature of 14.14°C, 0.73°C above the 1991-2020 average for March and 0.10°C above the previous high set in March 2016. ERA5 is a cutting-edge atmospheric reanalysis project from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). It utilizes various observations like surface, radiosonde, and satellite data to create a comprehensive picture of the atmosphere’s state over time. One of the key outputs of ERA5 is surface air temperature data.

March was the tenth month in a row that is the warmest on record for the respective month of the year. The month was 1.68°C warmer than an estimate of the March average for 1850-1900, the designated pre-industrial reference period. The global-average temperature for the past twelve months (April 2023 – March 2024) is the highest on record, at 0.70°C above the 1991-2020 average and 1.58°C above the 1850-1900 pre-industrial average.

The average European temperature for March 2024 was 2.12°C above the 1991-2020 average for March, making the month the second warmest March on record for the continent, only a marginal 0.02°C cooler than March 2014. Temperatures were most above average in central and eastern regions.

Outside Europe, temperatures were most above average over eastern North America, Greenland, eastern Russia, Central America, parts of South America, many parts of Africa, southern Australia and parts of Antarctica.

Copernicus is a component of the European Union’s space program, with funding by the EU, and is its flagship Earth observation program, which operates through six thematic services: Atmosphere, Marine, Land, Climate Change, Security and Emergency. It delivers freely accessible operational data and services providing users with reliable and up-to-date information related to our planet and its environment. The program is coordinated and managed by the European Commission and implemented in partnership with the Member States, the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), EU Agencies and Mercator Océan, amongst others.
