First Look at April Temps: GISS not yet reported

Posted by The Diatribe Guy on May 7, 2008

The temperature index data is starting to come out for April month end.

Starting with This raw data, the RSS MSU LT measure we get an anomaly of 0.080 (or, in units equivalent to GISS, a value of 8.0).

The anomaly isn’t necessarily comparative to GISS or other measures because it depends on the baseline.   What’s more important is the movements.   From the linked file, the last year+ looks like this:

200701: 56.0
200702: 39.8
200703: 39.5
200704: 31.6
200705: 23.2
200706: 28.0
200707: 36.3
200708: 36.7
200709: 26.4
200710: 23.0
200711: 12.1
200712: 8.5
200801: -6.9
200802: -0.2
200803: 7.9
200804: 8.0
