The November TempLS mesh index was virtually unchanged, at 0.687°C in November from 0.692°C in October. The TempLS grid index declined, from 0.626°C to 0.56°C. The disparity between mesh and grid is unusually large, and is caused by the polar warmth, which LS mesh is more sensitive to. Other indices generally rose in November; NCEP/NCAR index by 0.06°C, and also UAH lower troposphere (0.04°C).
The main map features are a cool band across Siberia, and big warmth in North America. Antarctic was warm, also Arctic.
I mention sea ice again, because it is starting to get more general attention. Arctic ice remains at record low, although it didn't really get worse during the month, despite an actual melting episode mid-month. But Antarctic ice has been exceptionally low since mid October, and is now entering the fast melt times.. Here is a section of the radial plot:
