Antarctic Sea Ice Update February 18 2014 – 697,000 sq km Above The Mean – Day 48

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 697,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. Which is 23.9% above the mean. (Lots of people hate me using the term “normal”).

The mean for day 48 is 2.91 million sq km. Sea Ice Extent for day 48 is 3.61 million sq km.

From day 47 to day 48 extent fell by 27,000 sq km. From day 46 to 47 extent actually rose by 64,000 sq km (I mistakenly said 38,000 yesterday).

So day 46 could turn out to be the day of the minimum Antarctic Sea Ice Extent for 2014. But it could still fall below that. No predictions from me.
