Abstract

Principal component analysis is applied to monthly South African rainfall fields and the synoptic systems represented in the higher eigenvectors identified by matching the spatial distribution of rainfall on each component with that of the various weather systems as revealed by satellite imagery. Systems identified include cloud bands connecting the tropical and temperate circulations, tropical and subtropical cyclones, coastal depressions, cyclones on the west coast and frontal troughs.
