Another Precursor of a Strengthening La Nina--Or Something Else?

I’ve moved to WordPress.  This post can now be found at Another Precursor of a Strengthening La Nina–Or Something Else?
The CPC updated their subsurface equatorial animation page. It had contained a few blank graphics in the past few weeks.

Click on the above link in the event the following .gif doesn’t post well.
In the January 3, 2009 graphic, the cross-section below the East equatorial Pacific contains some pockets with anomalies as low as -6 deg C, and they appear to be rising to the surface.
Off to the west, there’s a warm pocket working its eastward from the Pacific Warm Pool. It will be interesting to watch what happens…in extremely slow motion. I’ll have to check back in a month or so.

Comment Policy, SST Posts, and Notes

Comments that are political in nature or that have nothing to do with the post will be deleted.
The Smith and Reynolds SST Posts DOES NOT LIST ALL SST POSTS. I stopped using ERSST.v2 data for SST when NOAA deleted it from NOMADS early in 2009.

Please use the search feature in the upper left-hand corner of the page for posts on specific subjects.
NOTE: I’ve discovered that some of the links to older posts provide blank pages. While it’s possible to access that post by scrolling through the history, that’s time consuming. There’s a quick fix for the problem, so if you run into an absent post, please advise me. Thanks.
If you use the graphs, please cite or link to the address of the blog post or this website.
