At the beginning of the year the DMI “Daily mean temperatures for the Arctic area north of the 80th northern parallel” was a few degrees C above normal.
And then it went about 12C above normal. That coincides with the Arctic Sea Ice Extent falling out of the one standard deviation point it was in on day 26
In the last week or so it has plunged back down to 7C above normal, and it looks like it will continue. I wonder what will happen?
