2023 looks set to be the hottest year on record globally.
Summer heat in late September is not unusual in Europe. But this year many countries on the continent have been hotter than usual.

The average temperature of September was higher than that of July and August and 0.1 degree lower than that of June.
“Both September and the summer were quite remarkable. September was hotter than July and August and we almost never experienced June, which ended up being the warmest summer month,” writes DMI’s climatologist Michael Scharling.
Also Finland Made a hit list The average temperature in September is 12.2 degrees. This also happened in many European countries such as Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Great Britain and Switzerland.
In France, a heatwave warning was issued for the first time in September. When the department of Vienne recorded 38.8 degrees, it was the highest temperature recorded in the country in September.
Germany’s average temperature of 17.2 degrees for the period 1961-1990 was almost 4 degrees higher than the average September temperature and “further proof that we are in the midst of climate change,” said the head of weather agency DWD.
Parts of Europe, including the UK, which is believed to be facing a heatwave, are expected to experience unusually high temperatures in October. In Spain, a new record for October was set at Montoro near Córdoba on Sunday with 38.2 degrees. Meteorological agency Emet has warned that the record heat will last up to ten days.
Record citations for September have also been made outside of Europe, including in Japan, where the month was the warmest since records began 125 years ago.
Copernicus, the European Union’s climate monitoring service, found June, July and August to be the hottest summers globally, with average temperatures of 16.77 degrees Celsius.
Copernicus predicts that 2023 will be the hottest year ever recorded on Earth. According to scientists, climate change caused by human burning of fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas is raising global temperatures. The world is now 1.1 degrees warmer than pre-industrial times.
Facts: September in Sweden
In Sweden, September was very hot and provided rain and snow.
High summer heat was measured on eight days of the month, when the maximum daily temperature reached at least 25 degrees. For example, in Halmstad and Ullared, September was warmer than both July and August, something that has never happened since SMHI’s measurements began.
But September got off to an unusually wet start. In Uppland, Västmanland and eastern Dalarna, 24-hour rainfall was measured at several stations, which was higher than you would normally get throughout September.
Also, it was snowing. On September 20, Älvsbyn Norrland’s highest September temperature of 26.4 degrees was recorded, and Grüna woke up to the biggest September snow depth in all of Sweden since 2003. 38 centimeters of snow fell, but disappeared relatively quickly.
