Intense Kelvin Wave Shifting East Across Pacific Could Dissipate La Nina by April

Monitoring a Kelvin Wave now moving east of the Dateline and intensifying is extremely important as to a potential rapid dissipation of La Nina during early calendar spring. The dissipation of La Nina process would likely produce extreme storms (flooding) in the U.S. due to the energy release to the atmosphere of a Madden Julian oscillation episode coupled with an oceanic Kelvin Wave.
