In my previous video I discussed the sharp drop in North Atlantic SSTA’s and many asked why this may be the case.

In my opinion, there is no singular reason but a collection of several.

  1. Arctic sea ice melt (5th lowest for the time of year)
  2. Natural melt of ice/icebergs surrounding Greenland and Iceland
  3. Unusually strong/cold trough/lows over Iceland extending south
  4. Slowdown of the Gulf Stream
