Keep in mind, however, that lower troposphere temperature anomalies are expected to rise sharply in 2016 in a lagged response to the 2015/16 El Niño. See the post Evolutions of Global Surface and Lower Troposphere Temperature Anomalies in Responses to the 1997/98 and 2015/16 El Niños.
Next on the list is a post presenting meteorological annual mean (December-November) surface and lower troposphere temperature anomalies. I’m waiting for…
