January 23, 2017 Weather and Climate Report - NOAA Continues ENSO Neutral Denial

Written by Sig Silber

The recent series of Pacific storms is coming to an end. There may be one more for the Northwest. We have some activity along the East Coast. It seems that we are in a period where the weather pattern is changing every two weeks. It is partly related to the time of the year and partly related to the transition from a Near-La Nina Cool Event to pretty much straight-forward ENSO Neutral. For some reason, NOAA is having difficulty coming to grips with that.This does not show up in the short-term weather forecasts based on "dynamic models" as they simply work from current observed conditions (human input is involved), but it impacts longer-term forecasts which we reported on Saturday night. Most importantly it is misleading. The underlying problem may well be that our current system for characterizing the phases of ENSO may not be as sophisticated as needed to have the characterizations be maximally useful.
