of 5 m s −1 ( Weickmann et al. 1985 ; Knutson et al. 1986 ). It has a planetary mode of 30–90 days and influences both daily weather and climatological patterns, which makes it the dominant intraseasonal variability across the tropics ( Zhang 2005 ). The convective signal of the oscillation is associated with enhanced evaporation, cloudiness, and rainfall. The MJO typically initiates and tracks from a source region in the Indian Ocean, and decays as it reaches the western and central Pacific
