A little late but here is my update on the global temperatures for October 2023, The method used is always by spherical triangulation. Temperature fell from the peak in September of 1.49 to 1.29 in October.
These are the monthly temperature trends
The annual average temperature for 2023 with just 2 months to go is 1.09C for 2023
I am convinced the decadal trends are calculated on an Icosahedral Grid are the most accurate description of “climate change”.
