Climatologies

These climatologies give the monthly (or seasonal) behavior in an average year for temperature, precipitation, and wind.

Climatologies
The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is a coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomena that, when it is active, organizes tropical atmospheric circulation at planetary scales into regions of enhanced and suppressed convection.
This map shows an animation of monthly climatological precipitation frequency -- the average number of days per month with measurable precipitation -- for the 1971-2000 base period.
This map shows an animation of the month-to-month change in monthly climatological precipitation (in mm/month) through the course of the year based on CAMS-OPI data using the 1981-2010 base period.
This map shows the percentage of annual precipitation that occurs during the indicated 3-month season, based upon climatological precipitation using the 1981-2010 base period from the monthly CPC Merged Analysis of Precipitation (CMAP) dataset.
This map shows an animation of monthly climatological precipitation (in mm/month) through the course of the year based on CAMS-OPI data using the 1981-2010 base period.
This map shows an animation of monthly climatological sea surface temperature (in °C) through the course of the year based on Reynolds and Smith OISST Version 2 data using the 1971-2000 base period.
