UAH Global Temperature Update: May Sees Temperature Anomaly Come Down A Bit

The University of Alabama-Huntsville is one of the two keepers of the satellite temperature record (along with Remote Sensing Systems). Here's UAH's Dr. Roy Spencer with the update and our adventures in prop bets after the jump.

UAH Global Temperature Update for May, 2024: +0.90 deg. C

June 4th, 2024

The Version 6 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for May, 2024 was +0.90 deg. C departure from the 1991-2020 mean, down from the record-high April, 2024 anomaly of +1.05 deg. C.

The linear warming trend since January, 1979 remains at +0.15 C/decade (+0.13 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.20 C/decade over global-averaged land).

The following table lists various regional LT departures from the 30-year (1991-2020) average for the last 17 months (record highs are in red)....


From May 5's "UAH Global Temperature Update: April Sees New High Temperature Anomaly For The Satellite Era":

Great, just effin' great. I had to go shooting my mouth off with a prop bet on May 2, couldn't wait for the new number to be released, no sirree, had to be posted when the memory to post it was triggered:

Here's a prop bet for you. By May 15, 2026 we will see the satellite-measured -inferred global lower atmospheric temperature anomaly decline by at least 1/2 degree C.

The two keepers of the satellite record are Remote Sensing Systems in Santa Rosa CA and the University of Alabama-Huntsville.

Here's the temperature graph from UAH:....

and repeated: "Again the baseline for the prop bet: the above 'Latest Global Temp. Anomaly (March '24: +0.95°C)'" 

Well here's Roy Spencer, PhD from the University of Alabama-Huntsville at his personal site, later on that same day that shall live in infamy, May 2, 2024:

UAH Global Temperature Update for April, 2024: +1.05 deg. C....
