CFSv2 SST forecast anomalies with 1982-2010 climatology

Jan 2015 to Sep 2015  (Updated: Fri Dec 19 12:54:35 UTC 2014)

This page displays seasonal SST anomalies from the NCEP coupled forecast system model version 2 (CFSv2). The forecast is first bias corrected based on the hindcasts and the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) daily SST analysis for 1999-2010. Anomalies are then defined as the departure from NCDC's 1982-2010 climatology. More forecast plots (with 1999-2010 climatology) are available at CFSv2 seasonal forecast display. For Nino3.4 SST index, two additional versions are included in the table. One uses a probability density function (PDF) correction and the other uses a PDF correction plus an additional spread adjustment.
