The Global Temperature Report for April 2010 is available from the University of Alabama at Huntsville (courtesy of Phillip Gentry who works with John Christy and Roy Spencer). Watts Up With That has also reported on their analysis.
Excerpts from the report include that this is the
“[s]econd warmest April on record is warmest month in the Arctic.
Global composite temp.: +0.50 C (about 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit) above 20-year average for April.
Northern Hemisphere: +0.80 C (about 1.44 degrees Fahrenheit) above 20-year average for April.
Southern Hemisphere: +0.21 C (about 0.38 degrees Fahrenheit) above 20-year average for April.
Tropics: +0.63 C (about 1.34 degrees Fahrenheit) above 20-year average for April.”
The processed temperature data is available on-line at: vortex.nsstc.uah.edu/data/msu/t2lt/uahncdc.lt
As shown in the figures below which Phil provided to us, the anomalies continue to be the largest in the higher latitudes over land.
