The Atlantic is 'tooling' along, with full currents. That allows it to generate plumes, which are the only source of water for the N. Hemi. The Pacific is dead.
The storms are giving 'Dry and Ginger' some nearby rain. He is too cursed to actually get rain. And Toronto is getting a bit of rain from the Atlantic plume energy.
ps. and the smoke forecast is finally going up, where it should be. We always get forest fires, but this has been an unusual wind from the Atlantic. People have gone nuts that this is 'clange in action'. Because -- Hot is dry, and Hot is wet, and never the twain shall meet.
