Experimental PEAC Monthly Climate Summary and Forecast for the Federated States of Micronesia
Awaiting Approval for Experimental

Outreach / Education
The Pacific ENSO Applications Climate (PEAC) Center was established in August 1994 as a multi-institutional partnership, to conduct research and produce information products on climate variability related to the El Niño - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) climate cycle in the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI). To this end the PEAC Center provides rainfall, sea level, general and island/island grouping specific forecasts, and a tropical outlook to the USAPI on a monthly and quarterly basis by means of a printed bulletin (see http://www.weather.gov/peac/update). The dissemination of these summaries and forecasts need wider distribution to the climate community. Therefore, placing these forecasts into AWIPS will allow not only wider distribution, but an easily accessible archive. The product proposed, issued monthly, is a seasonal climate summary and forecast of rainfall and sea level for the four states of the Federated States of Micronesia: Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei and Kosrae. Individual sections for each island will include a summary of climate conditions observed on the island along with observed rainfall and sea level values. The forecast for each section/state will include a forecast summary of expected climate conditions over the next season, a probabilistic seasonal rainfall forecast by season for the next 12 months, a long range rainfall forecast in percent of total rainfall, and a deterministic sea level forecast.
