Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) was quick off the mark earlier this month when it proclaimed:

Australia’s warmest 12-month period on record

September 2012 to August 2013: the last 12 months

The past 12 months have been the warmest on record for Australia. The average temperature across Australia for the period 1 September 2012 to 31 August 2013 was 22.92 °C. This is 1.11 °C above the 1961–1990 average, surpassing the previous record of +1.08 °C that occurred between February 2005 and January 2006.”

The satellite data for the mid-troposphere for Australia- Land has just been released by the University of Alabama- Huntsville (UAH).  Unfortunately analysis of this data shows that the mean temperature for the 12 months to August 2013 was +0.668 Celsius, which makes this period the sixthwarmest of the satellite era (since December 1978).
