The year 2008 is likely to rank as the 10th warmest year on record since the beginning of the instrumental climate records in 1850, according to data sources compiled by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

 

 

 

 

The global combined sea-surface and land-surface air temperature for 2008 is currently estimated at 0.56°F above the 1961-1990 annual average of 57.2°F. The global average temperature in 2008 was slightly lower than that for the previous years of the 21st century due in particular, to the moderate to strong La Niña that developed in the latter half of 2007.
