The latest global temperature anomaly for October has been released and according to the UAH measure it's fallen sharply to +0.114C above the running 30 year mean, shown on the graph below.
Adjusted to the more standard time period, the anomaly is approximately +0.367C above the 1961-1990 time period used by the Met Office and WMO.
Both hemispheres and the tropics experienced falls in the last month, as the cooling influence of La Nina in the Pacific started to have an impact on global temperatures.
Further falls are likely in the coming months.
