NRL: And nary an INVEST stirred, no matter where one looked.....
      Thu Jun 04 2009 12:11 PM

Checking the NRL Website this morning I found out ...

"And nary an INVEST stirred, no matter where one looked....." in big red letters posted on their website. (Since removed.)

Nice to see that the guys at NRL have a sense of humor, too.

Oops! What's THAT I see 'stirring' in the Indian Ocean? MJO on the prowl?

Nope! A quick check with the latest (as of June 1st) "Expert Discussion" on the MJO phenomena from the good folks at the Climate Prediction Center ( MJO Expert Discussion ) indicates that this is not the case:

• The MJO has generally been incoherent during the past week.

• Based on the latest observations the MJO is expected to remain weak during the next 1-2 weeks.

• The MJO signal is not anticipated to contribute significantly to areas of tropical rainfall or tropical cyclone development during the period.

The MJO, at this time and for several weeks ahead, appears to remain "Incoherent" to non-existant. But that will surely change as we work further into the season.
