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 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.

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

observation in one place in North America.
