Mid-November 2010 SST Anomaly Update

I’ve moved to WordPress.  This post can now be found at Mid-November 2010 SST Anomaly Update
###################
I’ve shortened this edition of the mid-month update by including only the shorter-term NINO3.4 and global SST anomaly graphs; that is, the ones from January 2004 to present.

#############

NINO3.4
NINO3.4 SST anomalies for the week centered on November 17, 2010 show that central equatorial Pacific SST anomalies have dropped slightly in the past two weeks after a small rise. They’re at -1.5 deg C.

NINO3.4 SST Anomalies - Short-Term

GLOBAL
Weekly Global SST anomalies are continuing their decline. But like weekly responses to past La Niña events, there are major steps down with lesser steps up.

Jurinko: Interesting. That would be late for a low.

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.
