GISS January global temperature up by 0.07°C from December.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.93°C in January 2022, up from 0.86°C in December. This rise is similar to the 0.08°C increase (now 0.068°C) reported for TempLS.

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

January global surface TempLS up 0.08°C from December.

The TempLS mesh anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.724°C in January, up from 0.644°C in December. That makes it the fifth warmest January in the record. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index fell by 0.06°C.

The most prominent feature is the cold in NE N America, and the warmth almost everywhere in Eurasia. In fact most of the land area was warm, except for the Sahara and Antarctica.

You may notice that Moyhu had another hiatus in December/January, which caused me to miss the annual summary. I won't try to catch up there at this stage. There may be other gaps during the year, but Moyhu will return.

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

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