NOAA: Winter 2014-2015 warmest on record for globe

NOAA has released their global climate summary for February 2015 and winter (December-February) 2014-2015 today (the summary has a link to the full report).  The summary shows that February 2015 was the second warmest February on record for the globe as a whole, following February 1998, which was a strong El Nino year.  The December through February period was the warmest since official records began in 1880.  The East Coast was one of the few places on Earth this year that was colder than average since it was under cold flow from the Arctic for much of the month.
