How many months of 2020 will be declared "earth's warmest on record" by NOAA?

Question

So far we have:

January - warmest on record. NOAA, Copernicus

February - 2nd warmest on record. NOAA, Copernicus

March - 2nd warmest on record. NOAA, Copernicus

April - no information by NOAA yet. Reported as being 0.01 degrees behind warmest by Copernicus

If NOAAs verdict is unavailable for some reason EU Copernicus Climate Monitoring is to be used instead for that month.
