GISS December global temperature up by 0.07°C from November.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.80°C in December 2022, up from 0.73°C in November. This rise is very little more than the 0.065°C rise reported for TempLS.

Apologies for being a little late this month - I have been away from my computer.

As usual here, I will compare the GISS and earlier TempLS plots below the jump.

December global surface TempLS up 0.065°C from November.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.643°C in December, up from 0.578°C in November. This was only a partial recovery from the steep dro to November. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index rose likewise by 0.105°C.

Continental Europe and N Africa were warm, as was Eastren N America. But there was a large cold region in the W of N America, especially Canada. Cold in central Asia, but warm in much of the Arctic..

Apologies for the lateness of this month's report; I have been away from my computer. But the scripts kept going, on the results page here.

Here is the temperature map, using now the FEM-based map of anomalies.






As always, the 3D globe map gives better detail. There are more graphs and a station map in the ongoing report which is updated daily.

GISS November global temperature down by 0.26°C from October.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.73°C in November 2022, down from 0.97°C in October. This fall is a little more than the 0.217°C rise reported for TempLS.

As usual here, I will compare the GISS and earlier TempLS plots below the jump.

November global surface TempLS down 0.217°C from October.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.592°C in November, down from 0.809°C in October. October was getting warm, but the drop makes November the coldest month since February 2021. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index fell likewise by 0.219°C.

The main cold locations were the western USA (plus BC, Alberta) and Australia, and also Antarctica. Another cold spot in Canada's Arctic islands. But there was a band of warmth from W Europe to China. Perhaps significant for the near future was a not so cold E Pacific.

Here is the temperature map, using now the FEM-based map of anomalies.

GISS October global temperature up by 0.07°C from September.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.96°C in October 2022, up from 0.89°C in September. This rise is similar to the 0.094°C rise reported for TempLS.

As usual here, I will compare the GISS and earlier TempLS plots below the jump.

October global surface TempLS up 0.094°C from September.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.817°C in October, up from 0.723°C in September. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index rose likewise by 0.104°C.

The main feature is a band of warmth right through northern latitudes of N America and Eurasia, exienting through the Mediterranean to N Africa. There were cool spots in far East Siberia and the SE US. Cool in Australia except for far North, and still cool in the tropical Pacific.

Here is the temperature map, using now the FEM-based map of anomalies.

GISS September global temperature down by 0.06°C from August.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.88°C in September 2022, down from 0.94°C in August. This drop is very similar to the 0.061°C fall reported for TempLS.

As usual here, I will compare the GISS and earlier TempLS plots below the jump.
