Everything is chaotic right now, and the West Pacific is doing something.
The wpacific is generating a large typhoon. That normally takes a lot of heat energy away. The Pacific plumes are generally weak, but love to hit Vancouver straight on. While we, in northamerica are getting the plumes, the clairslides (air glaciers, blobs) are coming down on Europe. This gives them freezing weather, which they blame on La Nina. That's just another story and is tomorrow's fish wrap.
Thus, all the mention of clange is on BC right now.
