Note regarding data shown above
Anomalous Wind: The wind barbs show the direction and speed of the wind relative to the mean of this 15-day period. Colored contours illustrate the anomalous north-south (meridional) component of wind. Positive values are indicated by warm colors (reds) and represent an anomalous southerly wind component. Negative values are shown by cool colors (blues or no coloring) and represent an anomalous northerly wind component.
