    Cool!

    I did some diving recently in Indonesia. It was surprising how the surface temp was so much warmer than even a few meters down and at 19 meters it was downright cold. This was close to the equator. I don’t think models adequately account for all the cold water in the oceans.

      A lot of ocean surface energy was lost during the 2015/16 El Nino

      Solar recharge will be quite slow, unlike most of the last 50 or so years.

    The Arctic Cooling is the biggest thing that sticks out. I’ve been following Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Northern Europe, and Russia. Greenland, Northern Canada, and Northern Russia have had a steady dose of well-below freezing temps for a couple of months. Your operational graph is showing that there was a couple of residual warming areas. Those seem to have dissipated considerably. Looks like Northern Europe and Alaska temps should be dropping and make for a really cold winter in the NH.

    Seems to me that small, global ocean surface temperature changes (-0.17C from Aug 2017 to Sep 2017) have an extreme and almost immediate affect on land surface temps. I remember “record cold” temp for the NH in Greenland for July @ -33C, but wasn’t paying attention to SST in the Arctic.

    What time frame are these anomalies based on?…because there’s been the exact same positive anomalies in the exact same places as long as I can remember….

    Those are not anomalies…that’s the normal temp
