Still no sign of an ocean current map.
The last week or two has been characterized by strong Pacific plumes coming over NA.
This gives us nice dry fall weather. A far cry from the summer pattern of Arctic cold blobs meeting Gulf hot blobs right over Toronto. That was a lot of rain.
However, the Atlantic Ocean has shot its load like it always does, and we are relying on the Pacific, which doesn't have much left. All our warm, wet weather comes from the Pacific (sig. degree). With no heat energy, we are left with very cold, dry air. I have faith we'll still have lots of snow from the Gulf which holds the heat much longer.
We should have a big snowstorm in October, which hasn't happened for a long time. It's horrible, because all the leaves are still on the trees. I remember that when I was a kid.
As always, if I am completely wrong, it's new physics, which I will eagerly investigate.
ps. large vortex consumes little vortex, like black holes colliding. So cute.
