UAH Temperatures Drop In November
By Paul Homewood
The pause continues!
Forget about 2015 being the hottest year on record, as far as the satellites are concerned at least.
Despite the strongest El Nino conditions since 1998, UAH data for November actually shows a drop of 0.10C since the month before.
The current El Nino has been running much stronger for the last six months than the 2010 version did at anytime. While atmospheric temperatures would be expected to lag by between three and six months, it is nevertheless remarkable that this year’s temperatures are still well below those in 2010.
I would still expect temperatures to rise for the next few months, but it looks unlikely that the 12-month average will go above its peak in 2010, and certainly nowhere near 1998’s.
I’ll update once RSS figures are out, and ESRL update their ENSO summary.
