2014 Was The Hottest Year On Record

[center]NOAA: With Hottest August On Record, 2014 Takes Aim At Hottest Year On Record[/center]
Last month was the warmest August since records began being kept in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported Thursday. NOAA also projected out scenarios for the rest of the year making clear that 2014 is going to be one of the very hottest years on record — and possibly the hottest.

As the map shows, the oceans were particularly warm. In fact, ocean warming blew more than one record out of the water:

The August global sea surface temperature was 0.65°C (1.17°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.4°F). This record high departure from average not only beats the previous August record set in 2005 by 0.08°C (0.14°F), but also beats the previous all-time record set just two months ago in June 2014 by 0.03°C (0.05°F).

No millennial has experienced a below average temperature August, since, as NOAA notes, the last one occurred in 1976!

Must be nice to be a denier and avoid the heat. ](*,)

Yanno, here in Rawly we've had two cool summers in a row. Never got up over 100°. Rarely much above 90°. A few days in August when it was 85° or so.

That's not the Rawly I moved to 12 years ago.

This is why I like the term "global weirding" rather than "global warming". Overall, it's getting warmer, but in some places it's actually unnaturally cool.

And it's those exceptions that the climate idiots seize on in their sad attempts to deny the overall.

[hidden]Over in TFF Denierland, poor Matt continues to post WUWT bullshit -- most of it debunked by the very source articles linked to Watt's mendacity -- in his own private echo chamber.. I've asked him several times to bring it over here so we can engage in some fun arguing, but he evidently doesn't care for rebuttal. [sigh][/hidden]

Update:
[center]The Planet Just Had Its Hottest October On Record[/center]
The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reports that last month was the hottest October in more than 120 years of record-keeping — by far. This follows the hottest September, August, June, and March-May in JMA’s records! Projections by NOAA make clear 2014 is increasingly likely to be hottest year on record.
And these records occurred despite the fact we’re still waiting for the start of El Niño. It is usually the combination of the underlying long-term warming trend and the regional El Niño warming pattern that leads to new global temperature records.

These graphics compare the year-to-date temperature anomalies for 2014 (black line) to what were ultimately the five warmest years on record: 2010, 2005, 1998, 2003, and 2013. Each month along each trace represents the year-to-date average temperature. In other words, the January value is the January average temperature, the February value is the average of both January and February, and so on.

The graphic on the left shows the basic year-to-date comparison. The graphic on the right zooms even further to what were ultimately the five warmest years on record, and shows several end-of-year results based on the following scenarios:

The years 2013 and 2014 are the only years on this list not to begin during a mature El Niño event. The years 1998 and 2010, each of which became the warmest year on record at the time, ended the year in a strong La Niña event, as evidenced by the relative fading of global average temperature later in the year.

Sep-Nov 2014 hottest on record; Jan-Nov 2014 hottest on record...

Doesn't look good for the denier crowd... not good at all.

[center]The annual anomaly of the global average surface temperature in 2014 (i.e. the average of the near-surface air temperature over land and the SST) was +0.27°C above the 1981-2010 average (+0.63°C above the 20th century average), and was the warmest since 1891.[/center]
On a longer time scale, global average surface temperatures have risen at a rate of about 0.70°C per century.

Anyone see the "hiatus" we keep hearing about? Anyone?

The JMA findings have been confirmed…
