The TempLS monthly anomaly for February 2013 was 0.417°C, down slightly from 0.433° in January. I had earlier calculated a rather larger drop, but more incoming data have reduced that. It's still rather early, but there are 3832 data points, which is quite a good number.
This contrasts with very large drops in the satellite indices. But again, they had risen much more in the previous month.
Here is the spherical harmonics plot of the temperature distribution:
