Positive monthly mean precipitation anomalies were observed over the eastern Indian Ocean and northern Australia. Negative anomalies spanned over the western and central tropical Pacific, South China and Philippine Seas, equatorial Atlantic, central Russia, and northern Central Asia


Climate Highlight

For timely detection and monitoring of major climate events over the Asia-Pacific region, the latest observed weekly, monthly and seasonal mean values of 2m temperature (T2M), outgoing long wave radiation (OLR), rainfall (RAIN), sea surface temperature (SST), surface wind at 10m (Wind10m) and geopotential height at 500hPa (Z500) are provided.
