RSS have also now published their global temperature anomalies for June, so we can update the comparison with 1998 for them and UAH:
RSS anomalies have now declined by a full half degree since their peak in February.
Both datasets have now been tracking below 1998 levels for the last three months. In 1998, temperatures picked up in the NH summer, so it may be that we see temperature anomalies continue to track lower for the next few months.
Either way, it looks as if there will be no statistically significant difference between this year’s temperatures and 1998’s.
