simulations made with the same NSIPP-1 AGCM covering the period 1902–2004. Details of these AMIP runs are described in Schubert et al. (2004a) . The observational data used for comparison are the monthly Hadley Centre Global Sea Ice and Sea Surface Temperature (HadISST) ( Rayner et al. 2003 ) over the period 1901–2004, monthly mean precipitation over the period 1948–2004 computed from a retrospective analysis of daily station precipitation over the United States and Mexico (US-MEX) provided by the NCEP

sea surface temperature (SST) gradient across the APFZ, which has been confirmed by atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM) experiments by Inatsu and Hoskins (2004) . In addition, Nakamura and Sampe (2002 , hereafter NS02) pointed out that an excessively strong STJ in the midwinter North Pacific hinders baroclinic eddy growth despite the associated strong baroclinicity. They showed that transient eddies are likely to be trapped into the jet core, away from the surface baroclinic zone
