In March 2021, slightly negative sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies were observed over the equatorial Pacific. Suppressed tropical convection and easterly wind anomalies at 850hPa persisted along the central equatorial Pacific. Negative monthly mean temperature anomalies were observed over western and eastern Russia, Europe (excluding Northern Europe), Central Asia, and western and central China, northern Canada, and western USA. Positive monthly mean precipitation anomalies were observed over Australia, the Philippines, and northern South America, whereas negative anomalies spanned the Middle East, western China, and southern Brazil.
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.
