Winters are becoming warmer all across the US and around the world, but scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information say that winters are warming faster than warm seasons are.

In other words, winters are rarely “extremely cold” anymore, with winters becoming 5 degrees Fahrenheit hotter on average since the early 1900s, according to NPR.

Out of 141 years worth of temperature records, “January 2020 was the Earth’s hottest recorded January on average,” reports NPR.

The full report from NPR outlines how different parts of America are suffering from warming winters. Agriculture in California, for example, has been compromised by a lack of snowfall which normally helps feed water to farms, and meanwhile, other crops are getting fewer “chill hours” which means they don’t grow properly; in the Southeast, beekeepers have trouble as bees fly out earlier with warm weather and eat more of the honey they collect.
