Ocean plumes turn off


The Pacific plumes have turned off right now.  That means we don't get any dramatic weather for a while.  We just get 'default weather' which is dry and dependent on the latitude.  If we didn't have the wild convection of the ocean plumes, or ocean currents, then we would just have rings of weather on the Earth, like Jupiter.  

In Toronto, there should still be some Gulf plumes coming up, but these look very weak right now.  Without these plumes, Europe would be dry as a bone.
