2014 Will Be Hottest Year Ever in California

Has it felt to you like this year was even more ridiculously hot than previous years? Turns out (sadly) that your gut feeling (and extreme perspiration) was right. According to The National Weather Service, with just two months left in the year, there’s a better than 99 percent chance that 2014 will be the warmest year on record for California.

The state has already set a record for warmest first six full months of the year back in June and is now on track to top 1934 as the hottest year in history (well, at least since records started being kept in 1895).
