This is just interesting, and doesn't mean much, but demonstrates an important principle.
We are getting a Pacific plume crossing the mountains, which gives us cool, dry air. These plumes are also shutting off the Arctic spillways.
All the Arctic air is now spilling over Europe. The Atlantic cyclones have weakened and may no long be important to the weather. This always happens, the Atlantic runs out of energy after hurricane season. This short burst of energy may be the reason for the current narrow spike in world temperatures.
The ocean current map is very late, but the Great El Nino Mirage continues to get rattier, and may go away altogether.
