April ties for hottest on recordMany Americans and Canadians will likely find this startling, but the global temperature last month tied with 2010 as the warmest April on record since modern historical temperature record-keeping began back in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Tuesday.

Worldwide, the combined average temperature over land and ocean surfaces was 58.09°F, tying April 2014 with April 2010 as the highest on record and about 1.39°F above the 20th century average for the month.

Cooler weather prevailed across much of North America, however, as the lower 48 U.S. states experienced only their 46th warmest April and much of Canada saw near-average or cooler-than-average temperatures for the month.

"This contrast is an example of how a globally averaged temperature can differ from a single smaller region," NOAA said in a news release announcing the April temperature record.
