Moyhu hiatus

I'll need to be away from my computer for a few months, so I won't be blogging much. In particular, the latest data page will probably be irregularly updated, if at all. Sorry about that, it will resume.

GISS June global temperature up by 0.06°C from May.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.85°C in June 2021, up from 0.79°C in May. This small rise is similar to the 0.01°C increase (now 0.03°C) reported for TempLS. Jim Hansen's report is here.

As usual here, I will compare the GISS and earlier TempLS plots below the jump.

June global surface TempLS up 0.01°C from May.

The TempLS mesh anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.671°C in June, up from 0.661°C in May. It was the fifth warmest June in the record. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index fell by a lot - 0.21°C, making June about as cold as February. This was not reflected in the TempLS result.

The most prominent feature is the warmth right through Europe to the Urals, extending through the Middle East and Africa. Also warm in China and the N America, except for SE USA and the Hudson Bay area. The main cold spot was Antarctica; also India and W Siberia.

Here is the temperature map, using the LOESS-based map of anomalies.

As always, the 3D globe map gives better detail.
