January 2020: The warmest month on record for Europe

‘The warmth is really unheard of’: Europe just posted its warmest January on record.  (Washington Post, 2/4/2020)
The European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service announced Tuesday morning that January 2020 was Europe’s warmest January on record, edging out previous record holder January 2007 by 0.36 degrees. 
The month was a staggering 5.6 degrees above the 1981 to 2010 baseline of “average” January temperatures across the European continent as a whole, with much of northeastern Europe surpassing benchmark values by nearly 11 degrees.     [emphasis added]
