Nor-Easter Elongates Exactly Along Gulf Stream

This shows the air currents.

And this shows the water currents, outlining the Gulf Stream.

Nearly all storms are circular, but this is an amazing sight.  The hot zone is aligned right on top of the GS.  This adds more horse hockey to the fire, since I am convinced that you only get strong air plumes if they go down the channel of a major current.  As we see here, the hot water carves a low pressure trench.

I am amazed.  I wonder if anyone else is.
