Why djf season
Why DJF season?

  • In NDJ, ENSOreachesits peak

  • In February, Atmospheric teleconnections are the strongest


Objectives
Objectives

  • Evaluate the performance of CFS in forecasting DJF climate

  • Understand the CFS performance

  • Estimate the potential predictability of DJF climate with CFS


Outline
Outline

  • Document the CFS forecasted climatic state and its drift with the lead time of forecast

  • Examine the variability of CFS forecasted climate and its dependence on the lead time of forecast

  • Examine the CFS forecasted ENSO and its associated climate anomalies

  • Document the CFS prediction skill for DJF climate and estimate the potential predictability of CFS


Data

  • Model: 23-year CFS hindcast dataset

    (1982-2004)

  • OBS:

    SST: OI SST

    Surface Temperature: CAMS data

    Z200: Reanalysis 2 (R2)

Against obs

Against model itself: Taking one member as OBS and the average of other 14 members as forecast (“perfect model”)


Summary
Summary

  • Part of the CFS climate drift in the extratropics is likely forced by the drift in the tropics

  • Climate drift increases moderately as lead time of forecast increases from one to six months

  • ENSO dominates the predictable component of interannual climate variability

  • In the period of 1982-2004, ENSO-related mean anomalies are pretty linear in both CFS and OBS.


Summary continued
Summary continued

  • CFS shows pretty high forecast skills for the tropics and appreciable skills for the extratropics with up to six-month lead time

  • The decrease of forecast skills in the extratropics for longer lead time is partially due to the westward shift of the ENSO teleconnection patterns in forecast, which in turn is caused by the westward shift of tropical SST and precipitation patterns

  • “perfect model” skills show us brighter future
