Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Aug 13 2014 – 1,187,000 sq km Above ‘Normal ‘

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 1,187,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean.

In 2010 (green line) , despite smashing previous records, the sea ice tailed away to normal levels. And in 2013 (black line), sea ice went on to break 2012’s record and then broke it again and again until it peaked on Sep 30.

So I make no predictions.
