It was the 3rd warmest March. The Northern Hemisphere (+1.17°C) was the warmest March in the records, and the second-highest of any month in the NH.
My guess (+0.86°C) was again pretty good.
Recent temperatures are climbing, and now approach the peak of the 1997-98 El Nino:
|Nino3.4 anomaly on left-hand axis; GISTEMP anomaly on right-hand axis.|
April 2015, however, is looking like it will have a signficant anomaly drop of perhaps 0.2°C - 0.3°C, based on the first half of the month. More on that later.
