  1. About 5/13/2015 the Sun produced a peak in both spots and Flux. Spots went to 190 and Flux to 160 sfu. Now about 3 weeks later (21 days), the Ozone in Antarctica increased, the temperatures warmed, and the Antarctica Sea Ice formation slowed. Let’s see if the minimum [spots at 10, Flux at 95 sfu], which occurred on 5/30/2015, has the opposite effect. Will we have an increase in Antarctica Sea Ice formation in 3 weeks?

  2. The Arctic ice extent gap narrows in recent days.

    Day 156, June 5 results from MASIE. A day when 2014 takes a small loss while 2015 gains twice as much.

    2014 lost 22k on this day while 2015 gained 47k, the low rising to 11.34M km2. The loss is now 22.1% from NH max on day 93. 2014 lead reduces to 4.8%, which is about 575k km2 difference.
