We're heading to the hottest Arctic fall season in 3M years. Entire basin & Greenland 16°C to 28°C warmer than normal.

MASIE shows sea-ice extent. That's not a good indicator to show the effects of deep-sea warming and atmospheric warming. Sea-ice is spreading rapidly. Even the thinnest ice. Volume & concentration show us the real problem in the Arctic. Thinning fragile one-year ice everywhere.

The final 6 days of a 16 day forecast are less reliable indeed. I agree. This new 10 day forecast is more or less confirming the 11 to 16 day forecast from 10 days ago.

And for the record... The new 11 to 16 day forecast: (bullshit if you like)

Some effects of a warm fall season: Heat is a severe MY-ice killer (oceanic temps, ice temps, land temps & atmospheric temps) Lincoln Sea: Sea-ice movement is increasing during the coldest period. Moving ice = cracking ice = thinner ice = darker ice = melting ice even in winter

Western part of the Wandel Sea: Sea-ice ejection to the north in the middle of November!

The oldest ejected icebergs from Jakobshavn Glacier were resting (stuck on shallow bedrock) at Disko Bay. Now they are suddenly melting after a 10 year immobilisation. Cause: Anomalous SST's of Baffin Bay! Ilulissat Icefjord (Jak Glacier at the right, icebergs at the left) >>>

I am a layman, so I can be completely wrong, but the warmth seems ‘trapped’ in the north. Does that make any sense?

Arctic Amplification is the technical name for it.
