      WASHINGTON — The continental United States experienced the warmest
      spring on record this year, with temperatures far above the average
      over the past century, government scientists said Thursday.

      The United States, excluding Alaska, Hawaii and overseas territories,
      had an average temperature of 57.1 degrees Fahrenheit (13.9 Celsius)
      from March through May, 5.2 degrees (2.9 Celsius) above the average
      from 1901 to 2000, the data showed.

      "Spring 2012 marked the largest temperature departure from average of
      any season on record for the contiguous United States," the National
      Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a statement.

      This year's spring was up 2.0 degrees (1.1 Celsius) from the previous
      warmest spring in the United States which was recorded in 1910, the
      agency said.
