Today NASA GISS put up their temperatures for April: the globe was +0.73°C above their baseline (1951-1980), which is the 2nd-warmest April.
It's also the 12th-warmest of any month since 1880 (above its baselline value, of course).
The last 60 months are the warmest 5-year period in GISS's records. It also is for the lower troposphere, as measured by UAH.
The northern hemisphere saw the 3rd-warmest April. For the southern hemisphere it was the 4th-warmest.
