2012 goes down as the nation's warmest year on record

(FOX19) -

 

The year 2012 now goes down in the books as the 9th warmest year on record since satellite observations began 34 years ago.  

For the planet as a whole, eleven of the 12 warmest years on record have occurred since 2001.

The 10 warmest years globally are: 1998, 2010, 2005, 2002, 2009, 2007, 2003, 2006, 2013, and 2011.

The story is a bit different for the United States, with 2012 entering the record books as the warmest year on record for the 49 states comprising the Continental U.S.

The average temperature for March 2012 was farther above normal than any other month on record for the U.S. During March 2012, Iowa was the warmest place in the world when compared to normal.

Following March, the weather was warm enough across the country through the summer to set the record. 

In Cincinnati, 2012 was the warmest year observed at CVG since the first complete year of records there in 1948.

In Cincinnati weather history, 4 years were warmer than 2012, but for all of those years observations were made on rooftops in Downtown Cincinnati, giving those years a significant warmer bias over CVG.

The 10 warmest years at CVG are 2012, 1991, 2007, 1998, 1990, 1951, 1949, 2006, 1954 and 2011.
