Teleconnections

Recommended Posts

Found myself on the technical thread and was hoping someone could put these charts into rookie terms.

I understand they relate to the MJO and GWO - however after beating my head up against a brick wall and stumbling into a NOAA PSD Website - how technical ? Most of the analysis or explanation explains the impact on USA and not specifically to our neck of the hemisphere so to speak..

Fascinating to read that rising air in the tropics then impacts the polar air some 8 days later?

The reason I ask is that it would be fit some of the other jigsaw pieces into the puzzle. El Nino, La Nina, QBO, MJO, PV, NAO, AO - how many of these do we have to consider in determining what is around the corner?

Any help appreciated.

Some of these methods are very complex, I only know of MJO, NAO, Nino and Nina. Glacier Point is your man for info on this.

The accuracy of Teleconnections is great for predicting overall trends to cooler/unsettled/warm/drier spells, but isn't a suitable tool for any detailed weather forecasts, but it is great to let people know a week/two in advance of a spell of a certain type of weather coming up.

Whats interesting is the fact el nino is to do with (SO)southern oscillation, which is to do with the atmospheric pressure, and theirs la nina ,and all three are to do with the pacific ocean ,the temperature of the ocean: EN/LN and the atmospheric pressure: SO over the ocean, these water temps play a vital role in world weather, very interesting! how do the other phenenomens interact with these?

a rotating jigsaw puzzle, very complex stuff.
