LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Last year was the hottest year on record for Metro Louisville and the entire nation.

Despite snow storms that hit parts of the country, the average annual temperature in the United States was 55 degrees - a full degree warmer than the old record set in 1998.

Experts say you can thank the widespread drought and mostly absent winter for the temperature increase.

Locally, 2007 was the second warmest on record.
