July 3rd Warmest on Record GLOBLLY. Here is the Breakdown

According to NCEP (National Center for Environmental Prediction), July 3rd was the warmest day on record GLOBALLY.  Note this is not for one city, one state, one region or one country.  It's the entire planet. 

Global Temperatures vs Normal 18z July 3rd

The average global temperature reached 17.01 degrees Celsius (62.62 Fahrenheit), surpassing the August 2016 record of 16.92C (62.46F).   

The largest warmer anomalies are located near Antarctica.

I broke down the globe into 9 different locations. The break down is done to show how the temperature anomalies vary within each region. Each image shows the locations with above normal (warmer colors) temperatures and below normal (cooler colors) temperatures on July 3rd.  The global average takes into account ALL of these regions below.

First North America. I labeled regions that are above normal with "AN" and below normal with "BN"

Now the lower 48 states:
