USA experienced the hottest winter of all time

The warmest in their history, the American Ocean and Atmosphere Observation Service (NOAA) announced. The average temperature in winter months for the mainland (without Alaska and Hawaii) was 3.1°C. The “persistent heat” caused “the ongoing thinning of ice” in the Great Lakes, in the northern US. The ice cover in the area was at the lowest level of all time, according to NOAA. A large fire broke out in February in Texas, burning more than 4.3 million acres. It was the worst fire in the history of this South U.S. State. Last month was the third hottest February in US history, according to NOAA data that has collected data for the last 130 years. At the beginning of the week the European Copernicus Observatory reported that the last three months were the hottest ever recorded worldwide.
