NOAA's Coastwatch has a very nice SST image that's a little harder to retrieve: Click on this link, than click on "access coast watch satellite data", than click on "visual catalogue" and finally click on the area of interest on the satellite image to get at the sst picture (yeah, our government isn't making it too easy..., also the satellite has problems - so it doesn't work sometimes)
