I was reading a good thread over at WUWT on the subject . It is a strange thing and it's hard to say why it actually happens .It's only in modern times with the different means to measure such a thing that we know about it .It could be where the missing heat is but why there ?

This post provides an update of the unusual warming event in the sea surfaces of the eastern extratropical North Pacific…what is now regularly called “The Blob”. It does not appear to be ready to depart anytime soon. See the sea surface temperature anomaly map in Figure 1 for the location of The Blob

Maybe the ocean floor has heated up a bit?.
Great find dude.
Not sure how that slipped my mind.
Any known volcanic activity?
I was looking at this link to NOAA NODC (National Oceanographic Data Center
There does seem to be a patch of much warmer water.. I wish there were way more measuring stations.. I can't tell with just the few they have what's going on.. Still looking for more info
