Teleconnections

A teleconnection is a correlation between a persistent weather pattern occurring in one region with recurrent weather patterns in other regions of the world.

One of the most famous teleconnection is the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

NAO: Fluctuations in the difference of sea level pressure between the Icelandic low and the Azores high.

 

Positive phase: strong zonal (west to east) flow. Wet and windy weather.

 

Negative phase: meandering, meridional (north to south) flow. 

Incursions of arctic air.

AO: Pattern characterized by winds circulating counterclockwise around the Arctic at around 55°N latitude.

 

Positive phase: ring of strong winds circulating around the North Pole confine colder air across polar regions.

 

Negative phase: weaker and more distorted belt of winds allow an easier southward penetration of colder, arctic air masses.
