Cold front variability in the southern United States and the influence of atmospheric teleconnection patterns

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The variability of cold front passages in the southern United States and the effects of 3 teleconnection patterns on cold front frequencies are analyzed in this study. The Southern Oscillation is weakly correlated with cold front frequencies. However, cold front passage frequencies during El Niño and La Niña events are not significantly different. The Pacific/North American (PNA) and North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) teleconnection patterns exert a significance influence on cold front variability in this region. The PNA pattern is most strongly tied to variations in cold front passage frequencies in Florida. Various parts of the southern United States are affected by the NAO
