    sometimes the mei lags or is a head of the game...in the 1960's we had a few weak la nina mei years with a neutral oni... 1961-62 and 1962-63 had a DJF oni of -0.2 and -0.4...mei was near moderate la nina territory both years...1992-93 had a DJF oni of +0.1...mei was in el nino territory...the JMA has its own enso measuring technique...I look at all three when analyzing enso. ftp://www.coaps.fsu.edu/pub/JMA_SST_Index/jmasst1868-today.filter-5
