This question depends on exactly where you are looking. If you are discussing the difference between the coastal waters of the united states. According to the government websites including the NOAA website the coastal waters off of the East coast are warmed due to the the water being brought up from the equator compaired to the pacific ocean which brings water down from Artic. Leaving the East coast Atlantic waters with a warmer average temperature.
