Starting to think about possible/ best analogs for next winter. Here is a chart I created which shows the correlation between this year and possible analogs I looked at. I gave every year a rank for each category (ENSO,PDO,AMO,PNA,SOI,EPO,QBO,NAO/AO). I gave a rank out of 2 for the PDO and AMO. The ENSO was out of three given 1 point for each of the following 1) West/central based nino 2) Year coming off of a double nina 3) A Weak to Moderate Nino from +.5 to +1.5. I gave a score out of 1 point for the rest of the categories and added up the totals on the right. I left a space in the chart between the SST related indices and indices not related to SST's. Hope you enjoy it!
