GISS January global temperature up by 0.06°C from December.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 0.87°C in January 2023, up from 0.81°C in December. This rise is rather more than the 0.014°C rise reported for TempLS. GISS seems to have more warmth in N America and Europe than TempLS.

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

January global surface TempLS up 0.014°C from December.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 0.656°C in January, up from 0.642°C in December. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index fell by 0.043°C.

Continental Europe and N Africa were warm, as was most of N America. But there was a large cold region in northern Russia, and Antarctica was quite cold.

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.
