It was the hottest April on record this year, according to NASA, and increasing temperature patterns show 2016 is on the way to becoming the hottest year in recorded history.

The space agency has released its latest figures, showing this April was 1.11 degrees Celsius warmer than average April temperatures between 1951 and 1980, CNN reports. That also means April was the seventh month in a row to see global temperatures at least 1 degree Celsius higher than average.

The pattern began in February, when NASA said that month broke global temperature records by a “stunning” margin, The Guardian reports. The temperature record in February 2016 was 1.35 Celsius warmer than usual.
