The Moyhu NCEP/NCAR index rose in September to 0.475°C, up from 0.428 in August. This brings it back to about the level of May. There was then a drop to June, followed by a gradual increase to now. This seems to be associated with ENSO-neutral conditions. And as usual recently, it was the hottest month of its kind in the record. Next month will test this trend of records, since Oct 2015 was very warm.
On other matters, I apologise for the absence of blogroll, search etc. Apparently Google Blogger has recalled them for repair. I'm told they should reappear soon.
