Title: Temperature of the Troposphere

Abstract

The 2018 global lower troposphere temperature (LTT, surface to ~10km) ranked 3rd to 7th highest as monitored by radiosondes since 1958 and satellites since 1979 according to 9 datasets examined for this analysis. A modest La Niña event supressed the global LTT in the boreal winter and spring. In contrast, the tropical Pacific exhibited higher-than-average temperatures in boreal fall, indicating the possible initiation of an El Niño that may contribute to higher-than-average temperatures in the following seasons in 2019.
