I like these simple, pragmatic indicators. And the Gulf Stream is sliding away to the south?
Seems that way....

Interesting in-depth analysis of solar activity v temp.
I've come to expect very detailed bibliographies and analysis from Thongchai, and once again, I am impressed. We cannot spare this human. She "thinks". Although I am sure that there are some who are lighting bonfires with her name on them.
From Roy's post: "It all started when our global lower tropospheric (LT) temperature came in at an unexpectedly high +0.61 deg. C above the 1981-2010 average." and "Yesterday, John Christy noticed that the Southern Hemisphere was unusually warm in our lower stratosphere (LS) temperature product, while the Northern Hemisphere was unusually cool."
Yet we are seeing reports of severe cold from Finland, Russia, New Zealand and South America. From looking at nullschool, it is the meridianal jet streams again keeping these land areas cold and some really big warm pools in Indian ocean, Atlantic and Pacific producing the heat the satellites are reporting. We may not have an El Nino but the oceans are belching heat.
