Gulf Stream Disruption

There is a sign that the Gulf Stream may have been disrupted or partially halted this month (April 2007). The following image shows a cutoff just east of the US coast.

Is it a coincidence that this is happening the same time we are experiencing one of the coldest Aprils in recent memory? Is it a coincidence that this is happening the same time the northeast is getting ready to be hit by a historic nor' easter? It is historic in size as well as the fact that it is forecast to stall near New York.

It is important to keep an eye on the current to see how this progresses over the next few weeks. Be sure to check out the Atlantic Sea Surface Temperature database for updates.
