Thought a thread discussing the current global air temperatures and predictions might be of some use. By predictions, perhaps the climatically near term (next 30 years or so) would be best.
Anyway, to start off, the NOAA State of the Climate report has been released for May. Here are some of the details
I think it's quite interesting that we've managed the 3rd warmest May on record and 8th warmest year so far despite what are almost Nina conditions and plenty of cold spells around the northern hemisphere.
Seems unlikely that we'll see a top 5 year with ENSO neutral/Nina conditions predicted to remain during the year.
So what do people think? Will we see new record highs before the decade is out, perhaps during the next El Nino? Or pronounced cooling being felt due to the quiet sun? Or just continue posting top 15 years until a change arrives in the 2020s?
I got a Fine Offset WH2080 for Christmas and was very happy with it, loved the USB feature being able to update my twitter and use Cumulus, all was going swimingly until new years when the Anemometer packed in. A few questions
1) Is the reliability of this model good or are there common problems? Reviews seem fine on the internet
and 2) I have a budget of around Â£200, however if it was a really good one i could squeeze further than that, im really looking for one with USB connectivity however this is not crucial, i notice the Davis Vue is very good but without the pc interface at base cost.
If anyone could help me i'd be very greatful, would love to have a station set up for the potential of mid january onwards
Thanks in advance

Not sure if others are aware of it or not, but I've been having a good time trawling through the following synoptic archives:
Pressure charts at 6-hour intervals going back to the 1st January 1979, accompanied by 2m temperature projections and 6-hour precipitation (including diagnosis of convective and large-scale precipitation).
It means we can look back upon recent years in detail as well as surveying some of the more famous historic months (January 1979, December 1981, July 1983, January 1984, January 1987, February 1991 etc).
