Linear Inverse Modeling Tropical OLR, Wind, and SST Anomalies Pentads 5-12 ForecastsC-LIM VERSION 3.2beta: Interim update. Resolution improved to 2x2 degree, replaced NCEP R1 winds with CFSR winds, and updates one day sooner. STILL IN BETA; SOME PARTS INCOMPLETE.
C-LIM forecasts of OLR/200 mb wind (left, with contour interval 2.5 W/m2) and SST/Z20/850 mb wind (right, with contour interval 0.1oC) anomalies. Projected OLR (left) and SST (right) skill, measured as pattern correlation of Tropics-wide observed and forecast anomalies, is indicated above each panel. For earlier forecasts go here. Wind vectors are scaled by the reference vector (m/s) shown on each plot; vectors with speed below 0.5 m/s (1 m/s) at 850 mb (200 mb) are omitted for clarity.
