Surprising, but TempLS mesh is so far an outlier here. The TempLS mesh global anomaly rose from 0.65°C in July to 0.86°C in August (base 1961-90). This is a change after a period of slow decline, and is almost back to the level of last January. TempLS grid showed a much smaller rise of 0.043°C. These results are consistent with the NCEP/NCAR index (up 0.02°C). The satellite measures varied; UAH6 LT was up 0.05°C, but RSS down just 0.01°C. The reason for the discrepancy seems to be the big variation in Antarctica, which is variably seen and weighted.
The spherical harmonics map is here:
The regional temperature variations are similar to those in the NCEP/NCAR report, though the warmth in Russia is more pronounced. In the breakdown plot, you can see the big contribution from the change in Antarctica. SST also rose significantly.
On this basis, I would expect a rise of at least 0.1°C in GISS, with maybe smaller rises in NOAA and HADCRUT (less affected by Antarctica). In other news JAXA sea ice extent had a late melt rush and dropped below 2007 to be second only to 2012. It won't catch 2012, and the main marker remaining is whether it will drop below 4 million sq km. It is 4.023 now. NSIDC is also second place.
