August GMST - TempLS no change

This is the second month of running a TempLS analysis ahead of the major indices, and coincidentally with the same result. August's mean land/sea temperature anomaly came out the same as July - 0.45°C, relative to the 1961-1990 base period. The data and plots are at the latest ice and temperature data page.

Below is the graph (lat/lon) of temperature distribution for August, using GISS colors, levels and base period

And here, from that data page, is the plot of the last four months:


  1. I was correct...the UK is not doing well out of this global warming

  2. MB,
    Here in Melbourne we had a very warm August. It's supposed to be winter for us but yes, I think UK was colder.

  3. I find it intriguing how regional the impacts are eg those red blobs and also the white patches in South Africa and Indonesia as well as the UK. Somehow I would have expected more homogeneity, along the lines of the teleconnections used in some palaeo reconstructions.
