August and September of 2005 Two Warmest Months in Boston

Boston — The National Weather Service in Boston yesterday announced that August


and September of 2005 were the warmest of those two months on record there. The


average temperature for the two months was 68.9 degrees.


The record had been held in August and September of 2002, when the average temperature


of 68.6 degrees beat the record held the previous year. In 2001 a record of 67.5 was


set.


The record in Boston joins the growing body of evidence that the world is getting


warmer. Single-location heat records have been set all over the world in the 1990s and


2000s, adding to observations of melting permafrost and polar ice.


The Blue Hill weather station in Milton, Massachusetts, where these temperatures were


taken, has been keeping records since 1885. That is the longest continuous climate


observation in one place in North America.
