Last month was the hottest January since scientists began keeping temperature records in 1880, U.S. government forecasters said Thursday.

Owing to the rising land and ocean temperature across the globe, the scientists at the National Centers for Environmental Information, believe that 2020 will be one of the five warmest years recorded so far.

Things weren't so unusual in New Zealand, with Niwa reporting earlier that the nationwide average temperature for the month - as measured through its seven station series - was 17.2 degrees Celsius. The extent of Arctic sea ice was 5.3% below the average from 1981-2010, and Antarctic sea ice was 9.8% below the average. Temperatures were well above average in the second half of the month.

January 2020 marked the 44th consecutive January and the 421st consecutive month with temperatures, at least nominally, above the 20th-century average.

The previous record was set in 2016.

The four warmest Januaries documented in the climate record have occurred since 2016; the 10 warmest have all occurred since 2002.

Providing a detailed account of the changing temperatures, NOAA said: "The Northern Hemisphere also had its warmest January on record, at 2.70 degrees F (1.50 degrees C) above average". The Southern Hemisphere had a departure of 1.40 degrees F (0.78 of a degree C) above average - its second-warmest January on record after January 2016.
