    At the North Pole Camera yesterday it got down to -8.6 Celsius. http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/PAWS819920_atmos_recent.html

    DMI map shows the sub-freezing cold on the Greenland side of the pole, and also a newer and expanding area of subfreezing cold on the other side of the pole. http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/weather/arcticweather_imagecontainer.php

    And the DMI mean-temperature-north-of-80-degrees graph ticks down yet again. http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/meant80n.uk.php

    Steven is this legit? Will the Chinese cargo ship that is attempting the trip over the top of Russia be forced to turn back or will it get ice breaker help?

  3. Stephen Richards says:

    Steven Can’t be legit that picture. Where are the boat people ? No sign of them ๐Ÿ™‚ Those rowers are there somewhere. Oh wait I see them. They are being towed by the chinese icebreaker.

      The rowers are still short of Victoria Island. The kayakers, on the other hand, have made it all the way to Kugluktuk. The rowers should have designed a more kayak-like boat..

    Any updates on the rowers?

    Check in on Dangerous Waters. They are delayed. The picture of the weather page shows “Ice Pressure Warning in effect”., https://www.facebook.com/DANGEROUSWATERSTV

    Oceanographic Research ship Tara went East towards Franz Joseph land and met ice ((imho)as denoted by the period where it stopped reporting water temperture) and is now going home.

    Looks like Ellesmore Island and N & E Greenland shorelines got a fresh dumping of snow.

    Arctic temperatures are now below the sea water freezing point. It might rebound a bit in the next few days, but we can assume refreezing is imminent (which is unusually early !).
