The TempLS analysis, based on GHCNV3 land temperatures and the ERSST sea temps, showed a monthly average of 0.53°C for May, unchanged from April (April rose by a few thousandths with late data). UAH also was virtually unchanged. It was still very warm in much of NH, including the Eastern USA. There are more details at the latest temperature data page.
Below is the graph (lat/lon) of temperature distribution for May.
This is done with the GISS colors and temperature intervals, and as usual I'll post a comparison when GISS comes out.
And here, from the data page, is the plot of the major indices for the last four months:
