GISS Meteorological Annual Mean Global Surface Temperature Data Misses the Mark by a Click

GISS just released its LOTI update for November and it included their Meteorological Annual Mean (December to November) global surface temperature for 2014.

2014 came close. See Figure 1.   There was a sizeable downtick in the monthly data from October to November, so if there’s a sizeable uptick in December, the annual (January to December) data could swing the other way.

I’ll try to publish the full November 2014 update tomorrow.
