There is much evidence that El Nino and La Nina (collectively called ENSO) lead to signifIcant atmospheric seasonal predictability across much of the globe. However, despite successful predictions of tropical Pacific SSTs, atmospheric seasonal forecasts have had limited success. Two possible reasons for this lack of skill are considered. Firstly, some errors in an atmosphere only model, HadAM3, are investigated and secondly, the impacts on predictability of the remote SST anomalies teleconnected with EN SO (SST teleconnections) are studied.
