2017 was really, really hot. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the year is probably going to be among the top three warmest on record.

NOAA reports average global temperatures from January to November were around 1.51 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average. 

A NASA climate scientist also said 2017 will almost certainly end up as the second warmest on record.
