It's getting very warm again. January was warmer than any month before October 2015 in the MOyhu NCEP/NCAR reanalysis index. February was warmer again, and is warmer than Oct/Nov 2015, and behind only Dec-April in the 2015/6 El Nino. And it shows no downturn at end month.
Karsten also had a rise of 0.1°C from GFS/CFSR. UAH V6 is up by 0.05°C. And as I noted in the previous post, Antarctic sea ice reached a record low level a few days ago.
