How potentially predictable is northern European winter climate a season ahead?

Folland, C.K.; Scaife, A.A.; Lindesay, Janette; Stephenson, D.B.


We estimate the potential predictability of European winter temperature using factors based on physical studies of their influences on European winter climate. These influences include sea surface temperature patterns in different oceans, major tropical volcanoes, the quasi-biennial oscillation in the tropical stratosphere, and anthropogenic climate change. We first assess the predictive skill for winter mean temperature in northern Europe by evaluating statistical hindcasts made using multiple...[Show more]
