I'm giving up on the world weather, and just concentrating locally. This is just weather, and has nothing to do with 'climate'.
The cold blobs and the Gulf plumes are fighting each other. Right now, the boundary is below Toronto, but it is going up and down. We'll be in this pattern for at least 2 weeks, because everything looks steady in the Pacific. Our true spring starts when the Pacific breezes go straight east and blow away the cold blobs.
