If you thought summer 2021 was hotter than ever, you would be correct. For many people, it was!

The continental United States and many locations around the world tied or broke heat records over the summer.

It was also a year of extremes around the world, from the first ever rainfall of the Greenland icecap, to a historic late-season wildfire outside Denver, and a devastating tornado outbreak in the Midwest.

How did the rest of 2021 fair? NASA and NOAA have released the latest global temperature update for 2021.

NASA science communicator Michelle Thaller joined Susan on Studio 3 to share where 2021 fell in the record books.
