Default Inconsistent mash temp in rectangle cooler

I'm on my 2nd AG batch and I'm trying to hit 154 as my mash temp, in some areas of the cooler it's right there, others it's 158, others it's 148-150, I've stirred a decent amount and dont want to F up my braid at the bottom by stirring more. I'm not really going to sweat it this time, but i do have some boiling water to adjust it if needed.

Is this normal?

Set the temp at first. Stir every 15 minutes and relax it will be fine.
