Climate 6 two month seasons, 10 clusters per season North Atlantic / Europe region Clusters from observed 1850-2003 daily mean MSLP dataset For 2004 onwards use NCEP reanalysis Remove seasonal mean from NCEP MSLP Assign each field to closest cluster

© Crown copyright Met Office Conclusions GloSea4 did a reasonable job in predicting the likelihood of a cold winter In later forecasts, however, it wanted to retain the cold for too long Consistency with EuroSIP and other models Other factors such as La Niña, Atlantic SSTs and the QBO were considered alongside models Potential additional influences were the continuing low solar activity (Ineson et al., 2011), low sea-ice,...
