The GLAAM is an index we recently discovered, and we have found it to be linked with ENSO conditions. In a very simple nutshell, an El Nino is usually associated with a positive GLAAM. A La Nina is usually associated with a negative GLAAM. Using that, we may have found the reason why Dec/Jan was so bad. As you can see, the GLAAM was positive in the beginning of January, but as you can see the GLAAM has been diving. The diving GLAAM is adding to the building evidence that February may be a wild and snowy one. As we learn more on the GLAAM we will let you know what impacts the GLAAM may have on the month of February.
