    Looks like we’re about done for this year’s ice follies. Yet another failed prediction of an ice-free Arctic has come and gone. The sea ice is still there, with more to come as the water refreezes again – as it always has and always will…

    Boy, that sure is a whole lot of ice for being “ice free” .. I wish my bank account were that empty.

    Up coming weather for the basin has low pressure over E Siberian Sea and the N Pole. The low over the E Siberian could still affect the ice there for the rest of this week.

      Look for a ridge of high pressure to start building by this weekend, and it is forecast to stay around for a few days over the entire basin. Basically, really mellow weather coming up for the rest of September, if the forecast holds.

    The Russian ice maps are a much better match to the ice that is visible in the EOSDIS images. NSIDC maps are missing the ice in Fox Basin and low ball the Siberian and Beaufort areas by quite a lot. They seem more interested in minding “Not-Ice” than finding ice.

    If you look closely, you can see the ice forming in all the leads north of Greenland and the Can. Arch.
