Remote Sensing Systems has just released their global satellite measured temperatures for the month of April.
Globally, the average April 2013 temperature for the lower troposphere was .219 degrees C. or .394 F. above normal, making it the 13th warmest April in the satellite record.
The latest RSS decadal temperature trend for the lower troposphere is +.130 C. per decade. (see image below).
Another cold month for the continental U.S.
For the third consecutive month, the U.S. averaged colder than normal. April 2013 was .549 degrees C. or .988 degrees F. below normal. This was also the third straight month that the U.S. temperature anomaly was at least a 1/2 degree C. or lower.
