After earlier (false) signs of a greater rise, with 3833 stations reporting, TempLS mesh has risen from 0.591 in Nov to 0.636 in Dec 2014. The Nov number rose a little with later data, so Dec is now back to October levels. The report is here.
The Ncep/Ncar index showed a similar fall/rise, but only came back to about August level. GISS should track the TempLS mesh level reasonably, so a record is likely there, as with NOAA. HADCRUT remains uncertain.
