Anomalies in the sea-surface temperature, which may persist for months, modify the precipitation distribution over the Pacific, and the modulated latent heating distribution affects the jet stream and associated weather patterns over regions of the atmosphere far from the source of the sea-surface temperature anomaly. Coupled oceanatmosphere models have been able to predict these shifts in global weather patterns, and it is likely that further improvements in models and initial data will lead to significantly better climate predictions in the next several decades.

S. citizens. It is, therefore, necessary that these services be of uniformly high quality. 2.
