Abstract: Abstract This study revisits precipitation change in East Asia caused by the Madden‐Julian oscillation (MJO) and its interannual variation due to the quasi‐biennial oscillation (QBO). Specifically, boreal‐winter precipitation, derived from weather stations across China, Korea, and Japan, is examined for MJO phases 2–3 and 6–8. Consistent with previous findings, precipitation in southern China and southern Japan increases by up to 36% during MJO phases 2–3, when the MJO convection is located in the Indian Ocea…
