Normally, it should be leveling off.
I was waiting for the ocean currents, but they are delayed. I don't expect anything exciting, and the fact that nothing is changing will mean we continue to be cold. If we were to be warming up again, I'd expect to see the northern currents starting up again. They stopped after 2016, and plunged us into cold.
The above map still shows some black zones, which is probably why the ice is so healthy.
