Gulf Stream Stalling Again

Is the Gulf Stream Stalling?

“Sea surface temperatures in September 2014 were well above normal. In fact, 60% of the Northern Hemisphere ocean surface was 0.5°C or more above the 1981-2010 average. See below. An unlabelled version can be downloaded here.

Then there is a huge part of the gulf stream almost as big as the US which for some reason is colder than normal and it is the part of the gulf stream the U.K. and Europe rely on to keep their ports ice free and provide a temperate winter climate.
If the gulf stream has stalled the U.K. and Europe can expect a winter of devastation!”

Just saw this, reminds of of the various posts Indy and DanG have posted on this issue over the years. I think Indy was one of the first people I saw bring this up, back in 2007 IIRC.

The current Atlantic SST images still show the weak spot the article is referring to:
