We may have reached the Max for this year, after this date there is rarely any more significant growth.

With a significant warming event throughout the Arctic at least through the 24th, we may see declines from here.

Models show a continued wave of 960-980mb LPS buffering the Bering with sustained southerly winds and waves. It seems the Bering front should continue to retreat following the losses from 2/6-14. Perhaps substantially so.

First Commercial Ship crosses Arctic Ocean in Winter without an icebreaker

arctic-sea-route-first-ship-no-icebreaker-winter-

And, just to add a note of irony, the first commercial ship in the Arctic ocean in winter was an LNG tanker filled with methane---the super greenhouse gas that is causing rapid warming in the Arctic.

----------------------

It was just a few years ago commercial ships starting cross the Arctic in summer WITH an icebreaker. Then they traveled in summer without an icebreaker. And now we've got a tanker crossing a big part of the Arctic Ocean in winter without an icebreaker.

Its just A M A Z I N G how quickly global warming is destroying the Arctic Sea Ice.

Cheers!
