Warmest May Since (At Least) 1978

The Copernicus Climate Change Service in Europe says this May was the warmest May in their records, which I think starts only in 1979. [Yes]

The globe's surface was, on average, 0.63°C warmer than the average May from 1981-2010. But it was cold in places that have a lot of media: the northeastern US, eastern Canada, much of Europe, and Australia.
