a reasonable proxy for climatological activity of extratropical cyclones ( Hoskins and Hodges 2002 ), and their maxima occur over the oceans, in the vicinity of ocean western boundary currents (WBCs) and their extensions (e.g., Fig. 1b ). WBCs are unique regions of air–sea coupling: ocean currents in these regions generate strong ocean heat flux convergence, which can dictate spatial and temporal variability in air–sea fluxes [see reviews by Kwon et al. (2010) and Kelly et al. (2010) ]. The
