Abstract
    Since the 1982-83 El Nino Southern Oscillation, it has been clear that climatological sea surface temperature is not a satisfactory boundary condition for the atmospheric long-range forecasting models. Three ensembles of Jan 1988 forecasts with different boundary conditions are presented. In the first set the sea surface temperatures are kept constant during the integration. In the second, they are updated at monthly intervals. In the third, they are updated daily. The mean skill and its confidence interval calculated from the sample variability show that the northern hemisphere 500 hPa height forecast is not improved by the more realistic boundary conditions. Between the tropics, there is a significant skill increase for the divergent circulation.
