Loop Current

The Loop Current is an area of warm water that comes up from the Caribbean, flowing east past the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico. From there, it curves east across the Gulf and flows south parallel to Florida’s west coast, eventually wrapping around the state and moving into the Gulf Stream where it travels north along the Atlantic Coast.
