Figure: Average teleconnection pattern associated with MJO phase 3 during December - February. In the tropics, color shading shows the precipitation anomalies associated with MJO phase 3, defined when MJO precipitation is enhanced over the east Indian ocean and suppressed over the western Pacific.
The contours are composite 250-mb geopotential height anomalies using ERA-Interim reanalysis data from 1979-2014, with positive anomalies in red and negative anomalies in blue. Dotted regions indicate anomalies that are significantly different from zero at the 95% level.
