These are the min temps which are best for physics. Below, we have the temp anomaly, which shows what is colder than average.
By now, most of the Arctic should have been at 40 below, instead of just 30. The tropical plumes are still pushing up north.
The clairslides are setting up in Alaska, but the plumes dominate right now, although they are weakening. We should get a good cold blob by the end of the year.
