DMI Forecast For Tomorrow

It looks to me like DMI will have another flat to up slightly down day tomorrow, bringing it almost even with 2008, 2009 and 2010. (There was ice loss seen in the Canadian Archipelago which I missed the first time around.)

    The HORROR!

    It would be nice for the various measures of sea ice to agree at least broadly.
    The Cryosphere data published here http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.recent.arctic.png show the gap between the current ice level and the 30 year average at near record levels, at almost 1.8mm km**2. Afaik, the differences arise out of differing ice coverage percentages and different time periods for the averages. Still, the differences in the recent trends is quite striking.

    JAXA finally posted a bigger loss day…preliminary number shows a loss of 81094 km^2. Average loss is 81524 km^2, so it’ll be a nailbiter for the final number to see if it managed 18 days straight with below-average loss.

    any idea what the next few weeks hold Steve? in other words, what is the weather shaping up to look like in terms of what affects ice loss? i seem to remember a strongly negative AO can blow ice out of the strait, but i suspect a strongly positive AO has negative sides too….do we sort of hope for a moderate AO?

    • I think the next ten days will be slow. After that I have no idea.

    • AndyW says:

      A strongly positive AO has negative sides? What does that mean? It seems a contradiction

      A positive AO has a stronger polar vortex which can blow ice about more, a more negative can lead to calmer vortex but warm southerly winds from Russia that cause in situe melt.

    think of the seals!!!

  6. AndyW says:

    See ice extent loss on JAXA went up to 80 000 today from a run of low values for the last few days.

    Will have to see what happens in the rest of August.

    It is diving…

  8. Jussi says:

    And the reason can be found here:

    There are lot of thin ice in Beaufort, Chukchi and East Siberian Seas. Huge lost of ice can be expected there in the comming days. I’ll bet for a new record minimum on september.

    I think Robert means a positive AO will have negative effects on ice loss!!

    Now when you say negative do you mean no effect or make it worse ?

    Or even better.. depending on which side of the fence you are looking at 😀

    You can tell it is Friday. I’m even being kind to Steve,

      It depends whether you regard less ice as being good or bad!

      Yesterday my daughter invited herself round for a BBQ on Sunday as the weather was so nice. I did not have the heart to tell her it was going to be cold and rainy by Sunday.
