GISS November global temperature up by 0.1°C from October.

The GISS V4 land/ocean temperature anomaly was 1.44°C in November 2023, up from 1.34°C in October. This rise is similar to the 0.061°C rise reported for TempLS.

As with TempLS, November was by a large margin the warmest November in the record - next was 1.1°C in 2020. It was the second warmest month of all kinds; just 0.03°C less than last September.

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

November global surface TempLS up 0.061°C from October.

The TempLS FEM anomaly (1961-90 base) was 1.267°C in November, up from 1.206°C in October. It was by far the warmest November in the record by 0.337°C, ahead of 0.93°C in 2015, and it was very nearly the warmest month of any kind, after last September at 1.285°C. The NCEP/NCAR reanalysis base index rose by 0.09°C.

The average for 2023 to date is 0.995°C, well ahead of 2016 at 0,855°C. I'll show again the table of months in descending order of warmth:

Here is the corresponding stacked graph, showing how much hotter recent months have been

 Most of the world was warm, with the main cool spots being Scandinavia and East Antarctica.

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.
