    1. Probably because the conditions during summer are more stable than in the non-summer periods. The direct cause could be that during summer the pressure and temperature conditions are more similar to surrounding non Arctic regions, while in the colder months the difference would be greater and favor fast changes in local (Arctic) weather.

  1. I’m curious, a bit surprised, about the decrease in the ice extent in both poles in the last 1-2 weeks.
    What’s happening? Some kind of “side effect” of the moderate El Nino?
