They have reported an anomaly of .76 deg. C for May 2014, .06 deg. C hotter than the previous record anomalies of .70 deg. C in May 2012 and May 2010.

Averaging the monthly anomalies so far this year (.67   .43   .71   .73   .76 deg. C) matches the record anomaly of .66 deg. C seen in 2010. This means that if we continue to see anomalies similar to or any higher than what we have seen for the year so far, 2014 could set a new temperature record.

Year   Jan  Feb  Mar  Apr  May 
2010    65   74   87   82   70
2014    67   43   71   73   76

I do not see 2014 in par with 2010 yet, but we are on the way. 2010 had falling anomalies from now on, and is 2014 able to stay in the 60ies then 2014 will be the warmest year on record.

Treat the GISS figure as provisional: http://moyhu.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/another-error-in-ghcn-for-may-from.html

I don't know if it affects the other series.
