The heat for Jupiter's storms is generated internally. So perhaps there are hotspots or upwellings of heat, so that the heat does not reach the clouds uniformly?

"Increased turbulence and storms first observed on Jupiter more than two years ago are still raging, according to astronomers from the University of California, Berkeley, and the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, who snapped high-resolution pictures of the planet earlier this month."
