July will be the hottest month ever recorded, climate scientists said on Wednesday, USA Today reported.

Although official data won’t be available until early next month, the record-breaking temperatures throughout Europe, the U.S. and the Artic so far in July will be enough to break the previous worlwide record set in July 2017, the scientists said.

When the previous mark was set, average global temperatures were 2.16 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the 20th century average for July of 57.8 degrees, according to NBC News, with this month narrowly surpassing those averages.

Dozens of scientists are agreeing on the prediction, with Brian Brettschneider, a climate researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, telling NBC News that “It's looking like there's a strong likelihood that we will end up with the warmest month ever.”

According to data from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), nine of the 10 warmest years since record taking began in 1880 have taken place this century, according to USA Today.

NOAA added that it appears 2019 will end up as one of the three warmest years ever recorded, which scientists have blamed mainly on human emissions of greenhouse gases, the Capital Weather Gang said.

Michael Mann, a climate scientist at Pennsylvania State University, stressed this point to NBC News, saying “It’s part of a worrisome pattern of streaks of broken records which, we have shown simply would not be occurring in the absence of climate change. This is just one additional confirmation, along with the spate of unprecedented extreme weather events we’ve seen in recent years, of the fact that the impacts of climate change are no longer subtle. They are staring us in the face.”
