March 2020 was among the hottest months in the world for this time of year, the European climate change monitoring service of Copernicus (C3S) revealed on 6 April.

“Global temperatures remained at the same level as 2017 and 2019, the second and third warmest Marches ever,” said the C3S in a statement, clarifying that these indicators are only behind the record set in March 2016.
Although temperatures in western Europe were slightly lower than the global average observed between 1981 and 2010, the monthly figure was inflated by “much higher temperatures in the Baltic Sea and Eastern regions”, as well as by above average records “in much of Russia, many parts of Asia, on the east and west coasts of the United States, Mexico, southern South America, Central America and western Australia”.
The other exception to widespread warming, in addition to western Europe, occurred in northwestern Canada, Greenland and eastern Antarctica.
