On Monday, we learned from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that September was the hottest of them all, out of 135 Septembers going back to 1880. The same was true for August 2014. And June of 2014. And May of 2014. What that means is that for each of these months, the combined average global land and ocean surface temperature has never been higher, at least since we started recording these temperatures back in the presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes.

Clouds and more clouds. That is the thrust of this week's weather scene. After a weak weather system went through on Monday, we'll see a brief break today, with maybe some sunshine before those clouds come back and deposit more rain on us.
