The only global temperature report that I really trust is the UAH satellite readings that Dr Roy Spencer manages. The temperature in January took the expected drop.

The January temperature is equivalent to the January 2011 but below 2009 and 2010 January temps. If the forecast of a very weak solar Cycle 25 comes to pass, we should see some record lows in coming years.
