reaches of the Yangtze River Valley and southern Japan and suppresses precipitation over the South China Sea (SCS) and Philippine Sea. Although the first leading modes explain only a small portion (10%–20%) of the total variance of rainfall and 850-hPa winds because of the complexity of the EASM spatial patterns, they are physically meaningful. The major components of the EASM, such as the WPSH, the tropical monsoon trough, and the mei-yu–baiu–changma, are clearly depicted by the first modes ( Fig. 3
