November 2014 was the seventh warmest November on record, and the year-to-date-period January - November was Earth's warmest such period since record keeping began in 1880, said NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) on Monday.  NASA rated November 2014 as the 8th warmest November on record.  November ended a 3-month streak with record warm monthly temperatures—August, September, and October 2014 were all the warmest such months on record.  Global ocean temperatures during November 2014 were the warmest on record.  This marks the seventh month in a row (beginning in May 2014) that the global ocean temperature broke its monthly temperature record.  Global land temperatures in November 2014 were the 13th warmest on record.  Global satellite-measured temperatures in November 2014 for the lowest 8 km of the atmosphere were the 8th or 2nd warmest in the 36-year record, according to Remote Sensing Systems and the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH), respectively.
