2020 likely historically hot for South Bend and beyond

Global temperatures are once again on a record-setting pace heading into August. 

The first half of 2020 was just a fraction off from being the hottest ever recorded. 2016 still holds that record by just about a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit.

Climate Central

Most regions across the globe have been warmer or much warmer than average from January through June of 2020.

South Bend is no exception to the warm weather trend. 2020 is currently a top-10 warmest year in Michiana.

July 2020 is also looking warm. With two days to go, the month sits in 12th place for warmest July monthly temperatures. 

24 out of 29 days this July have had above-normal temperatures in South Bend. 

The good news: August will likely start out with below normal temperatures, with highs dipping into the 70s into next week.
