North Atlantic Oscillation - September '09

+1.51

2007...2000...1956...1974...and 1999 are still the best NAO-analog years after the addition of September/s data point. Only change was '74 and '99 switching places from August/s rankings.

What/s it all mean...Mr. Peabody?

2007: -ENSO...+AO...-PDO...-QBO...sun spots below normal
2000: -ENSO...-AO...+PDO...-QBO...sun spots near normal
1956: -ENSO...+AO...-PDO...-QBO...sun spots above normal
1974: -ENSO...+AO...-PDO...-QBO...sun spots below normal
1999: -ENSO...+AO...-PDO...+QBO...sun spots near normal

El Niño more than likely this winter...so how much utility is there using NAO analog years given their unanamous association with -ENSO?
