Gulf Stream has officially moved to Spain


This is the sea surface temperature.  For the first time, there is a strong thermal signal indicating that our favourite Gulf Stream has moved permanently to Spain.  It's has been weak since 2016, but hasn't formed a strong current showing a thermal effect.

That means the UK will enjoy a fine Canadian winter, even worse than the last few years.  Good for them.

ps.  the current map is still a mess there, but all those knots are 3 dimensional.  The Gulf Stream has always been more of a thermal signal, rather than current.

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plains...
lol ;)

Was the little cursor moving around for a reason? (In the short video?)
If so, why?

As for the UK having a cold winter... like ours?
Hopefully they'll get through it?

Ha, that's my nervous twitch. I saw that, too, and thought that guy is crazy. :)

Lol... It's freezing here in Spain. Last week 35-40c,now I've got a furry jacket on. The animals of the forest have been trashing my crops for weeks now in the hunt for food, so I presume it's going to be a BAD winter.

Yeah, Spain is in an Arctic downdraft.
