GISS November global temperature down by 0.26°C from October.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.73°C in November 2022, down from 0.97°C in October. This fall is a little more than the 0.217°C rise reported for TempLS.

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

November global surface TempLS down 0.217°C from October.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.592°C in November, down from 0.809°C in October. October was getting warm, but the drop makes November the coldest month since February 2021. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index fell likewise by 0.219°C.

The main cold locations were the western USA (plus BC, Alberta) and Australia, and also Antarctica. Another cold spot in Canada's Arctic islands. But there was a band of warmth from W Europe to China. Perhaps significant for the near future was a not so cold E Pacific.

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.
