Favorable currents & a lucky break

RU15 made good progress during the night.
Temperatures are staying low.

A lucky break in the clouds. The only clear area offshore is right over RU15.
A new Zoom region as we approach the shelf break. We are heading east towards the X and the southern end of that eddy.

Currents have increased and are towards the east.

As we approach the shelf break this week, we'll be changing the scales on several of our plots to make them easier to read. Temperature and current scales will be adjusted for the smaller range. The SST Zoom has been zoomed even more. We'll restart the temperature sections so we can see the smaller scale fronts of the shelf.
