June 2014 Global Satellite Temperature Results

July 07, 2014; 3:17 PM

Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) has released their June 2014 satellite measured temperature anomaly data for the lower troposphere.

According to RSS, June 2014 was the 4th warmest June in the satellite record, behind 1998, 2010 and 2002. The satellite record goes back to 1979.

The RSS image below shows the June 2013 lower tropospheric temperatures anomalies for most of the globe in degrees C.

The RSS graphic below shows the updated decadal temperature trend for satellite, which is currently at +.124 C. +.223 F. per decade globally.

The final RSS image below shows the global view of the trend in temperature change between 1979-2013.

As you can clearly see, the greatest warming has taken place across the far northern latitudes, while the most cooling has been off of Antarctica. Much of the world is in the positive.

I will post the June 2014 global surface temperature data when it becomes available.
