enso current status
ENSO Current Status
  • General Summary:
  • La Niña conditions continued across the equatorial Pacific.
  • Negative sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies persist across the central equatorial Pacific Ocean, while SSTs are now above-average in the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean.
  • Atmospheric circulation anomalies associated with La Niña remain significant.
  • A transition to ENSO-neutral conditions is expected by June 2011.

During the last 4-weeks (3 – 30 Apr 2011), equatorial SSTs were generally 0.5°C or more below average between 170°E and 140°W, while above-average temperatures have emerged in the eastern Pacific.

mjo current status

MJO Index -- Recent Evolution

Ensemble GFS (GEFS) MJO Forecast

  • The axes (RMM1 and RMM2) represent daily values of the principal components from the two leading modes
  • The triangular areas indicate the location of the enhanced phase of the MJO
  • Counter-clockwise motion is indicative of eastward propagation. Large dot most recent observation.
  • Distance from the origin is proportional to MJO strength
  • Line colors distinguish different months

RMM1 and RMM2 values for the most recent 40 days and forecasts from the ensemble Global Forecast System (GEFS) for the next 15 days

light gray shading: 90% of forecasts

dark gray shading: 50% of forecasts

MJO Current Status

The MJO signal remained weak during the previous week.

Strengthening of the MJO signal is expected during week 1, with a large forecast spread in week 2.

Monsoon Season: JUN-SEP

The North American Monsoon season has ended. Precipitation during the past 90 days has been near average.

During the last 90 days near average rainfall has occurred in west Africa near Senegal and Guinea.

Below average rainfall has occurred in central Africa.

During the last 90 days above average rainfall has occurred in Indonesia. This is consistent with La Nina conditions.

northern hemisphere circulation

200-hPa, 925-hPa Wind & Temperature Anomalies- Recent 7 days

Northern Hemisphere Circulation

Low-level (~600 m) wind and temperature anomalies are based on the NCEP Climate Data Assimilation Systems (CDAS) analysis. The patterns of anomalous temperature and wind at 925-hPa are usually similar to surface observations.

Note: Areas with surface pressure below 925-hPa are masked out.

Omega Anomalies and Total Precipitation - Recent 7 days

Northern Hemisphere Circulation

Rising motion (negative omega, yellow/red shading), usually associated with wetter- than-normal conditions.

Sinking motion (positive omega, blue shading), usually associated with drier-than-normal conditions.

CPC daily gridded precipitation analysis over land only. The daily gauge analysis is created on a 0.5 degree lat/lon over the global land by interpolating gauge observations from ~30,000 stations.
