Correlation analysis is used to establish the connection between interannual variations in the historical snowpack record from Paradise Ranger Station on Mount Rainier in Washington State and leading climatic indicators of the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, connections between historical gridded monthly sea surface temperature data from the Pacific Ocean and the snowpack record are explored in an effort to establish a basis for qualitative long range snowpack prediction.
