Tale of Two Hemispheres

Interesting split in SST temperatures for the Northern Hemisphere vs. the Southern Hemisphere.  The Northern Hemisphere SST anomaly is predominately warmer than normal while the Southern Hemisphere appears to be mostly cooler than normal.

The near surface (2 meter) Northern Hemisphere temperature has continued to remain well above the 1981-2010 average while the southern Hemisphere is tending to remain near normal to slightly below normal, both strongly influenced by the sea surface temperatures.
