I took the NSIDC Arctic (red) and Antarctic (blue) graphs, overlaid them, stretched the Antarctic y-axis to make the scales identical, and offset the y-axis to make the current Arctic extent line up with the average Antarctic extent.
By doing this, you can visually see that the negative Arctic anomaly is smaller in magnitude than the positive Antarctic anomaly. This means that global sea ice extent is above normal for the date.
(This would be a lot simpler if NSIDC published the numbers they use to make these graphs.)
The ice is melting very slowly in Antarctica because temperatures there are running far below normal.
