>I’ve shortened this edition of the mid-month update by including only the shorter-term NINO3.4 and global SST anomaly graphs; that is, the ones from January 2004 to present.
NINO3.4 SST anomalies for the week centered on November 17, 2010 show that central equatorial Pacific SST anomalies have dropped slightly in the past two weeks after a small rise. They’re at -1.5 deg C.
NINO3.4 SST Anomalies – Short-Term
Weekly Global SST anomalies are continuing their decline. But like weekly responses to past La Niña events, there are major steps down with lesser steps up.
Global SST Anomalies – Short-Term
OI.v2 SST anomaly data is available through the NOAA NOMADS system:
