When combining average temperature over land and ocean surfaces, NOAA found a record high for September at 15.72 Celsius (0.72C) above the 20th Century average.

"With the exception of February, every month to date in 2014 has been among its four warmest on record, with May, June, August and September all record warm," the NOAA said.

It said most of the land on Earth was warmer than normal last month, except for central Russia, some areas in eastern and northern Canada, and a small region in Namibia.
