HERNANDEZ, Benigno. ENSO and cold fronts arrival in Cuban western region. Investig. mar. [online]. 2002, vol.30, n.2, pp.3-19. ISSN 0717-7178.

Cold front arrivals in winter season is analyzed from 1923-24 to 1995-96 existing a direct positive relationship in the increases of cold fronts in ENSO years in the western region of Cuba. Most important variables in the front's arrivals as air temperature, sea level pressure and rainfall suffer variations with respect to historical average is analyzed. Gulf of Mexico SST is probably factor that seems to influence in a great or smaller fronts arrivals or dissipation of some of then when cross through the Gulf of Mexico. Superposed Epoch Analysis (SEA) offered a significant association degree among ENSO events in the increase of cold fronts arrivals in Cuban western region, for that is considered an appropriate and useful statistical tool

Keywords : cold fronts; temperature; pressure; rainfall; western Cuba; ENSO.
