Since I’ve proven myself inept at updating the evaluations on time, I went ahead and automated the teleconnection evaluations so that you don’t have to rely on me to manually update them. The error charts are now on each of the NAO, AO, and PNA pages. If you’d like the other chart, or you’d like to see an archive, you can go to this link: http://www.atmos.albany.edu/student/macritch/televalidation/. I’ve also restricted the charts to show only the past 60 days.
If you have any ideas for new charts that you’d like to see, please let me know. Since the process is automated now, it’s easy to add new charts.
A quick update to the CFS teleconnection evaluation can be found below. This is a special edition because I’ll be away for Christmas. The next update will be on Monday 12/28. Click here to see the explanations of these graphs.
