Verification of Linear Inverse Modeling Tropical OLR, Wind, and SST Anomalies Pentads 1-8 Forecasts

C-LIM forecast verification for the most recent 200-850 mb wind shear, totals (left) and anomalies (right). Wind shear 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 clarit. All forecasts verify against Pentad 0, whose anomaly is shown in the EOF space of the model. For comparison, see the cross-validated forecast skill maps.
