Global averaged surface temperature for November 2018 was 0.63C using my spherical triangulation method merging GHCNV3 with HadSST3. This is a fall of 0.12C since October. The baseline used is always 1961-1990.
With just one month to go this ensures that 2018 will be the 4th warmest year, continuing the slow recovery from the super El Nino year in 2016.
North America was exceedingly cold in November
