ECMWF Monthly Maps

9:45pm Monday…

The monthly run of the ECMWF model from Sunday night.  The weak trough over us the 2nd half of the month doesn’t seem to show up as it did on last week’s run.

    We’re now suffering from “Reverse 2011 Syndrome” with the models trying to bring in troughs, but subsequent runs bumping the trough up north and showing new warm ridging develop instead. Attempting to revert us to normal springtime conditions, but then “cluing in” to a persistent warm trend along the West Coast.

    Seems like the models are having to catch up with this unusual persistent pattern vs. statistical climatology.

    Wow taking these at face value, May could end up in the top 5 warmest this year with of course 1992 being the benchmark year.

    I have no idea why the small images turn out all grayed out with lines sometimes…drives me nuts too!
