Troposphere temperatures for October 2016 - another hottest on record
The troposphere temperatures for October 2016 have been released. The lower troposphere is recorded in UAH v6 beta 5 and RSS TLT v3.3. This report also covers RSS TTT for the troposphere (without the "lower") and follows pretty much the same format as previous monthly updates.
For RSS TTT (troposphere)
, last month was the hottest
October on record. For 2016 to be colder than the previous hottest year (1998), the troposphere would have to average a negative
anomaly:- less than -0.41 °C for the remaining months.
The lower troposphere (UAH beta v6.05)
was the equal hottest
October on record with 2015. For 1998 to remain the hottest year in the UAH lower troposphere record, the average for the next two months would need to be below 0.21 °C.

I do think that RSS is improving and will get better. However, by the time it's as reliable as the ground data sets, the point will be rather moot.
The UAH appears to be going in the opposite direction, though we can't say for sure since S&C are a bit secretive.
