Temperatures across the globe were quite warm, especially over a large part of the northern hemisphere. Temperatures were above normal over a good deal of North America, eastern Asia and northern Europe. It was exceptionally warm across Scandanavia, and much of the United States. In fact, preliminary data for November 1999 indicated that the monthly mean temperature averaged across the contiguous United States was the warmest since 1895. Nearly 77% of the country was much warmer than normal while less than one percent of the country was much cooler than normal. Cooler than average temperatures were observed over portions of South America, across central Europe into parts of central and western Russia. See the Detailed Climate Perspectives, listed above, for more details and analyses of the global climate.
