Current Climate Conditions

In July 2020, weak negative equatorial sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies were observed over the central and eastern equatorial Pacific. Suppressed tropical convection persisted along the central Pacific and wind anomalies at 850hPa were easterly along the equatorial Pacific, which is consistent with ENSO neutral conditions. Negative monthly mean temperature anomalies were observed over northern Russia, western China, Alaska, and western Canada. Positive monthly mean precipitation anomalies were observed over the Arabian Sea, western Indian Ocean near northern Madagascar, eastern China, South Korea, and Japan. Negative anomalies spanned over western Russia, the Indochinese Peninsula, and the western North Pacific.


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.
