GISS August global temperature up by 0.02°C from July.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.95°C in August 2022, up from 0.93°C in July. This rise is similar to the 0.016°C rise reported for TempLS.

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

August global surface TempLS up 0.016°C from July.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.792°C in August, up from 0.776°C in July. Temperature has been steady the last three months. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index fell by 0.003°C.

The main feature is warmth through Europe, N America and China. There is a cold region centered on Mongolia. Antarctica was fairly warm. The other extensive cool area was central and SE Pacific (La Nina).

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

As always, the 3D globe map gives better detail. There are more graphs and a station map in the ongoing report which is updated daily.
