Apollo News Snippets – December 2022

The NOAA extreme weather map for October 2022 shows below average sea ice extents in both the Arctic and Antarctic Seas. October saw two tropical storms sweep through. The first, Hurricane Roslyn, made landfall as a Category 3 storm on Mexico’s Pacific coast. The second, Tropical Storm Nalgae, made landfall in the Philippines, where it caused devastating landslides and floods that killed more than 100 people and displaced nearly 200,00 families.

  • The October 2022 NOAA Global Climate Report is out and, though the temperatures have definitely dropped for the fall season, the October 2022 average global surface temperature was the 4th warmest since recording started in 1880. The October temperature in the contiguous U.S. ranked in the warmest third of the 128-year record. Interestingly, both South America and Oceania had their coolest Octobers since 2016. The Arctic Sea ice extent was the 8th-smallest extent on record. The Antarctic Sea ice extent was the second lowest on record. These lower-than-average ice extents are indicative of global climate change.
