The globally averaged temperature over land and ocean surfaces for February 2016 was the highest for the month of February in the NOAA global temperature dataset record, which dates back to 1880. It was the highest departure from average among all 1,646 months in the record. The December–February temperature was also the highest for the season and highest departure from average for any three-month period on record.
