Arctic ice volume to follow last year
This is amazing. The Arctic ice volume curve is following 2018 which was a huge year for ice. But you can see how last year dove under the pack in November when our little El Nino hit. Then it was struggling with a downward offset in 2019. Now it is Trumpy Unfettered as the summer comes in.
There is no warmth in the Pacific and no sign of an El Nino. So I expect it to go above 2018 come November. But we are still going to get 'Arctic Melting' news articles for another year or so. Who reads these charts anyway?
ps. a cold wind from the NW threatened to make us quite cold for the next week or two. But suddenly, a pulse of warmth from the Gulf blocked it, like with football.
