AMO – Winter is Coming

Sep/Oct/Nov/Dec only go up to 2014 of course. 2005 was the peak AMO (approximately).

And its downhill to same kind of late 70s cold that made people think a new ice age was coming.

The good news. It should be another 25 years to reach bottom. The bad news. 2005 style warmth is 60 years away.

AMO Update as of April 2014

UPDATE: Sorry about the title. Not sure what happened. Fixed now.

The AMO is definitely linked with climate cycles. And probably has more to do with Arctic Sea Ice than any other factor. This is loess trend of each month of the AMO on the same graph.

The winter months started trending down around 2005/2008. Spring months have been flattish since the same time. Only July-Sept have stayed high. June has been flat.

The first four months of 2014 were all negative.

AMO From 2000 as of 2014 April

Same graph, but from 1856 and 1979. The spread in months now seems to be repeating the pattern way back in 1856. But that could be an endpoint artifact.

Same graphs, but the data and the trends.

AMO (May) vs Antarctic Sea Ice Day 138

The graph is in thise post compares sea ice extent for just one day of each year – 138 to the AMO for the month day 138 is in – in this case May. There isn’t any AMO data for May 2014 yet.

AMO data comes from NOAA, Sea Ice data comes from NSIDC.

The red is the  May AMO – Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation. The blue is Antarctic Sea Ice Extent just for day 138.

The dashed lines are the liner trends for each.

AMO Update as of October 2013

The AMO is definitely linked with climate cycles. Below are two graphs of each month of the AMO. One is from 2004. The other from 1856.

I think the AMO has peaked, but it is still wobbling around at the top of the peak and may continue to do so for several years.

Thw winter months definitely show an alternating saw-tooth pattern going down. If the pattern holds Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb should show a big drop.

But Oct stayed flat when it should have dropped. Who knows.

HADCRUT4 Northern Hemisphere Winter Doom

Do you live in the Northern Hemisphere.? Did anyone tell you that in the midst of record CO2 levels HADCRUT4 shows massively dropping winter temperatures?

At the bottom of this post is a graph of HADCRUT4 Northern Hemisphere only temperatures for each month for the last 7 years.

Did you know December was cooling at -.9C per decade? By 2100 December could be 8C colder?

Did you know January was cooling at -.73C per decade?

Did you know March was cooling at -.56C per decade?

Did you know February was cooling at -.19C per decade?

Did you know November was cooling at -.2C per decade?

Did you know October was cooling at -.17C per decade?

Did you know April was cooling at -.17C per decade?

I’m glad I have a wood stove.
