GISS is up from 0.97°C in August to 0.91°C in September. This compares with a larger fall of 0.12° in TempLS mesh, and contrasts with the small rise in the NCEP/NCAR index. It is still the warmest September in the record (just ahead of 0.90°C in 2014). It really hasn't cooled since May, and a record hot 2016 is ever more likely.
As I mentioned in the TempLS post, the dominant effect on recent changes is Antarctica. TempLS rose strongly in Aug, and dropped in Sep; GISS responded in the same way, but to about half the extent. I expect NOAA and HADCRUT to be less affected again.
I'll show the map comparisons below the fold. The updated comparison plots with 1998 are here
