Here is a great view of how the 2015-16 El Nino caused higher surface temperatures last year and this, displayed in 2-meter temp anomalies (weather station height). The satellites’ data show the uptick began in earnest October 2015 and returned to neutral in May 2016. SSTs are now firmly in neutral.
