The role of the meridional sea surface temperature gradient in controlling the Caribbean low-level jet
The Caribbean low‐level jet (CLLJ) is an important modulator of regional climate, especially precipitation, in the Caribbean and Central America. Previous work has inferred, due to their semiannual cycle, an association ...
Interannual variability of the midsummer drought in Central America and the connection with sea surface temperatures
The midsummer drought (MSD) in Central America is characterised in order to create annual indexes representing the timing of its phases (start, minimum and end), and other features relevant for MSD forecasting such as the ...
The early rainy season in Central America: the role of thetropical North Atlantic SSTs
We explored the relationship between the precipitation anomalies during May to June as the first peak of the rainy season in the Pacific slope of Central America, and sea surface temperature (SST) fluctuations in the ...
Variability of the Caribbean low-level jet during borealwinter: large-scale forcings
An index capturing the anomalies of the zonal wind at 925 hPa from 1950 to 2010 was defined to explore the relationship between the fluctuations of the Caribbean low-level jet (CLLJ) and the main climate variability modes ...
Regional precipitation estimations in Central America using the Weather Research and Forecast model
Estimaciones de precipitación regional en América Central usando el model Weather Research and Forecast
Using the regional climate model WRF, and the NCEP-NCAR Reanalysis Project data as boundary and initial conditions, regional precipitation for Central America was estimated by means of the dynamical downscaling technique ...
