Briefly, a composite view of MJO phases indicates that inactive (i.e., suppressed or dry) phases are characterized by easterly winds and synoptic subsidence; and as an MJO event develops, moistening of the lower atmosphere in conjunction with surface westerlies occurs. The troposphere remains anomalously moist throughout
