From: El Niño-like teleconnection increases California precipitation in response to warming

Figure 6

Ensemble mean 500 hPa trend of (ac) RWS and (df) divergence (DIV) for (left) the CESM LENS, and the CMIP version 5 (CMIP5) model subset that yields a detrended DJF Niño 3.4 SST versus California precipitation correlation of (centre) at least 0.30 (CMIP5 HIGH-r) and (right) <0.20 (CMIP5 LOW-r). Trend units are 10−11 s−2 century−1 for RWS 500 and 10−6 s−1 century−1 for DIV 500. Symbols represent trend significance at the 90% (diamond), 95% (X) or 99% (+) confidence level, accounting for autocorrelation.
