Two persistent high pressure areas, one over Europe and one over eastern Canada and the northeast U.S., resulted in temperatures well above the long term mean in these areas. The average global land temperature was 0.65 C above the long term mean, the second warmest anomaly on record. Global precipitation anomalies were highly variable. For example, eastern areas of the U.S. received record rainfall in September primarily due to hurricanes Dennis and Floyd, while areas to the west continued to be much drier than the long term mean. Refer to the climate perspectives reports listed above, for more details and analyses.
