CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The weather right now is a hot topic, in more ways than one. 22News is working for you with why this year might be the warmest year on record.
The word mild has become a very common word lately here in western Massachusetts.
According to NOAA, autumn set a record for being the warmest in the lower 48 states.
Last month alone, 32 states experienced temperatures that were warmer than normal. In Westfield, a weather and climate site meteorologists use, it was the 4th warmest and 5th driest November on record.
After last winter it’s hard not to compare to what were experiencing now.
Carl Dorval, from Chicopee, told 22News he is used to much colder temperatures by this time of the year, “It would be ten above, 20 above, what are we at 56 now? Beautiful. I’m sure there’s a lot of people out there who would be agreeing with me.”
This weekend, world leaders agreed on a plan to help deal with climate change.
We have felt the warm air here in western Massachusetts especially just this past weekend, when temperatures hit the lower 60’s on Saturday.
