Apollo News Snippets – March 2022

The NOAA extreme weather events map for January 2022 shows mixed polar conditions with the Arctic Sea seeing its largest January ice extent since 2009, while in the Antarctic, the sea ice extent was the second-smallest for the month – only 2017 had less ice coverage. And then in North America we saw the coldest January since 2009, while South America saw its second warmest January – behind only 2016.
  • The NOAA Global Climate report is out for January 2022, and, yep, the warming trend continues. Even with the presence of a La Niña episode in the Pacific Ocean, which typically cools global temperatures, January 2022 was still 1.60°F (0.89°C) above the 20th Century global average, making it the sixth warmest January on record, and it also marked the 445th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th Century average.
