individual monthly mean ("x"s) of the standardized 850-hPa
zonal wind anomaly index in the latitude belt 5°N–5°S for 135°E–180°
(top), 175°W–140°W (middle) and 135°W–120°W (bottom). Anomalies
are departures from the 1979–95 base period means and are normalized
by the mean annual standard deviation.The x-axis labels are centered on
