Current Weather Outlook

Written by

Both the NOAA and JAMSTEC forecasts are signaling ENSO Neutral this winter but JAMSTEC shows near-El Nino conditions for January 2018 while NOAA shows near-La Nina Conditions for the same month. The sum of the difference is 1C in the ENSO Index for January 2018 which is a significant difference. Thus the North American forecasts for the Second Period namely DJF i.e. the winter of 2017/2018 are very different in the two forecasts. And the forecasts for the third period, Spring, are also very different. JAMSTEC projects a very cold winter for Europe.

Competition, especially when battling with someone considered to be a rival, can easily change how you and others in your organization manage issues and problems. Such changes are often undetected by your mind and can result in you as well as your colleagues abandoning some of your most cherished ethical ideals without even realizing it.
