March was hot in US, not so elsewhere in world

While the United States baked to its hottest March by far, the rest of the world took a break last month from ever increasing temperatures.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the world as a whole had its coolest March since 1999. It was only the 16th warmest March since record keeping began in 1880. Still, the month was 0.8 degrees Fahrenheit (0.5 Celsius) warmer than the 20th century average.
