Seasonal Standardized Velocity Potential Anomaly

These maps show the seasonal (3-month average) velocity potental climatology and standardized anomalies at the 925 and 250 hPa pressure levels in the atmosphere using the 1991-2020 base period for the season shown.

Seasonal velocity potential climatology values are shown as grey contours with a contour interval of 1.0E+06 m2/s; dashed contours represent negative values and solid contours represent positive values. Positive standardized velocity potential anomalies are shown in yellow and orange, and negative anomalies are shown in shades of blue, with shading starting at +/-1 standard deviations and a contour interval of 0.5 standard deviations.
