RENO, Nev. (AP) — The National Weather Service confirms Reno experienced its hottest September on record since the service started keeping track back in 1888.

Last month's average temperature of 70.7 degrees barely eclipsed the previous record of 70.6 degrees set in September 2011.

It follows a global trend. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says last month's average temperature worldwide was 60.2 degrees, matching the 2005 record. NOAA says September 2012 was the 16th time the world has set or tied a hot temperature record since 2000. The last time the world set a cold temperature record was December 1916.

As a whole, the summer of 2012 was Reno's third warmest on record averaging 75.2 degrees for June, July and August combined. Reno's hottest summers were in 2007 (76.2) and 2006 (75.3).
