23 User meeting June Seasonal forecast skill:

24 User meeting June Seasonal forecast skill:

25 User meeting June Skill comparison: S2 vs S3: S3 Operational (S2) Persistence

26 User meeting June Summary (1): Monthly Forecast: Good performance over the Northern extra-tropics up to days. Good skill in predicting the Indian monsoon. Prediction of the West African monsoon show less skill. Verification is on the website and it is updated every week. Additional products are made available on the web.

27 User meeting June Summary (2): Seasonal Forecast: Good performance for the predictions of SST anomalies over the equatorial Pacific. Tropical storm predictions show a good skill and this is enhanced by the EUROSIP multi-model system. Neither the ECMWF or EUROSIP dynamical systems produced good predictions for the last winter (DJF 2005/06). The skill of the seasonal forecast varies with regions and seasons. Latest results from S3 indicate that the Niño predictions are generally improved.

28 User meeting June Skill comparison: S3 vs S2 Operational SystemPrototype of the new system (S3) Blue is good, yellow is bad But based on 15 years, sampling error is substantial for local values, so spatial distribution is unreliable except where skill is high Preliminary results:
