> The combined global land and ocean surface temperature was the second 
> warmest September on record, according to NOAA’s National Climatic 
> Data Center in Asheville, N.C. Based on records going back to 1880, 
> the monthly National Climatic Data Center analysis is part of the 
> suite of climate services NOAA provides.
>
> NCDC scientists also reported that the average land surface 
> temperature for September was the second warmest on record, behind 
> 2005. Additionally, the global ocean surface temperature was tied for 
> the fifth warmest on record for September.
>
> *Global Temperature Highlights*
>
>    * The combined global land and ocean surface temperature was 1.12
>      degrees F above the 20th century average of 59.0 degrees F.
>      Separately the global land surface temperature was 1.75 degrees F
>      above the 20th century average of 53.6 degrees F.
>    * Warmer-than-average temperatures engulfed most of the world’s land
>      areas during the month. The greatest warmth occurred across Canada
>      and the northern and western contiguous United States.
>      Warmer-than-normal conditions also prevailed across Europe, most
>      of Asia and Australia.
>    * The worldwide ocean temperature tied with 2004 as the fifth
>      warmest September on record, 0.90 degree F above the 20th century
>      average of 61.1 degrees F. The near-Antarctic southern ocean and
>      the Gulf of Alaska featured notable cooler-than-average 
> temperatures.

> *Other Highlights*
>
>    * Arctic sea ice covered an average 2.1 million square miles in
>      September - the third lowest for any September since records began
>      in 1979. The coverage was 23.8 percent below the 1979-2000
>      average, and the 13^th consecutive September with below-average
>      Arctic sea ice extent.
>    * Antarctic sea ice extent in September was 2.2 percent above the
>      1979-2000 average. This was the third largest September extent on
>      record, behind 2006 and 2007.
>    * Typhoon Ketsana became 2009’s second-deadliest tropical cyclone so
>      far, claiming nearly 500 lives across the Philippines, Cambodia,
>      Laos and Vietnam. The storm struck the Philippines on September
>      26, leaving 80 percent of Manila submerged.
