US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — In the coming months, sea surface temperatures will be above average both in the tropics and in non-tropical regions, according to the website of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
Experts warn that an increase in ocean surface temperature above the average in most regions of the globe in May and June will contribute to exceeding the temperature norm on land, especially in tropical latitudes and in large areas of the Northern Hemisphere. One of the factors contributing to this phenomenon is the trend towards global warming.
In the central region of the tropical Pacific Ocean, in the eastern Indian Ocean, over Australia and the western part of the Indonesian archipelago, precipitation is likely to be above average. Below normal rainfall is projected in southern South America, the Caribbean, the equatorial part of South America and the Indian subcontinent.
Despite the absence of the warming phenomenon of El Niño, the global average surface temperature is close to a record level. April 2020 was the warmest in the history of observations, despite the fact that in April 2016 the powerful El Nino phenomenon was observed. In addition, according to international data, global temperatures in January, February and March 2020 also ranked first and second among the highest in the history of observations.
