gulf of mexico currents

Nino year or what?
Wheres the West arm of the Gulf stream?
Wheres the loop current?
There seems to be a small isolated spot in the western part of the gulf that has some velocity. But no where else. (Got this from Passageweather).

Re: gulf of mexico currents

Not clear to me what you are asking, but there is loads of Gulfstream/Gulf Loop current data available via NOAA/OPC etc. Link to graphic of GOM currents today below. The Gulf Loop current extends quite far to the NW now.
