What a wonderful resource

The internet & Google allowed me to put this information together in less than a half hour.

60 N latitude Greenland --------- water temp 39 F
56 N latitude Easdale Scotland -- water temp 56 F
50 N latitude Labrador ----------- water temp 41 F
41 N latitude - Chatham, MA ------ water temp 62 F
38 N latitude - Cape May NJ ------- water temp 48 F

Even with the best library available I don't think I would have been able to assemble those simple four lines in any time frame.
A wonderful tool, such a shame it's been used for evil.

Viewing satellite maps for ocean temperatures for 7 Oct, that Chatham MA number seems low - should be closer to 65. Some warmer water is trapped between Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, and Chatham. And water temperatures along the coast from NC to Manasquan NJ should be closer to 68.

Chatham number appears to be a few degrees too low. But that Cape May numbers looks off by a 20 degrees.

The Chatham number is from the Coast Guard station on the ocean side of the elbow whereas most reported temps are from the bay side which are warmer.

The Cape May temperature is way low. That was the first one I went looking for and got that from a Cape May site rather than the Coast Guard or NOAA readings. I found out later when I added the Wallops and Cape Charles temperatures.

60 N latitude Greenland --------- water temp 39 F

56 N latitude Easdale Scotland -- water temp 56 F

50 N latitude Labrador ----------- water temp 41 F

41 N latitude - Chatham, MA ----- water temp 62 F

38 N latitude - Cape May NJ ----- water temp 63 F

37.75 N lat ---- Wallops Island ----- water temp 68 F

37.26 N lat ---- Cape Charles ------- water temp 68 F

But I read the changing climate is weakening the Gulf Stream by increasing the Labrador current and wondered what that will do to Britain....
and down the rabbit hole I went.

Did you read about the changing climate from some news site or from Mark Levin and Ben Shapiro?

Neither, an off the wall science report on the arctic.

It amazes me every time I rediscover how much of Europe is considerably further north than we are yet not the great white north we picture of those latitudes.

60 N latitude Greenland & Oslo
56 N latitude Easdale Scotland & Moscow
53 N latitude James Bay & Dublin
50 N latitude Labrador & Paris
43 N latitude Niagara & Bilbao
41 N latitude - Chatham, MA
38 N latitude - Cape May NJ
37.75 N lat ---- Wallops Island
37.26 N lat ---- Cape Charles
36 N latitude Raleigh, NC & Gibraltar

Sitting up here at 51.8156N (next stop on the left, Newfoundland), I can never get to grips with the fact that New York and Madrid (830 miles south of us) are at a similar latitude, 40.7128N and 40.4168N respectively.

I've always found it odd to be sat here at 42 -where we disappear under several feet of snow each winter- having come from 53 -where people get excited if snow lasts for a few seconds once it touches the ground.
