Strong low pressure system causing big wind. http://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/surface/level/orthographic=-18.97,97.39,1589
It’s rather amazing that the Arctic Ice is thickening, as per -> http://psc.apl.washington.edu/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/schweiger/ice_volume/Bpiomas_plot_daily_heff.2sst.png , but the extent is just up 2M km. The winds must compress the ice into a thicker multi-year ice mass.
