I ask myself if the storms are in some ways (not in all) not that bad for feature.
I think about water with highter salt coming up from 30m depth and now because freezing point is lower, the ocean can give more heat to space in winter.
And low temperatures at 945 levels in the north region, maybe there is a point with massive refreeze there, data since yesterday from wipneus shows a stop in total iceloss in area and extent.
If temperatures keep low for some time, maybe something happens like showed with the mixing machine.
The energie in north was mixed, so in winter more energie can go to space, but i read also, that much ice is going to fraim streat export and this is surely bad for future season.
But i believe in negative forcing in north, the less ice, the more heat can go to space, but of course i also know that if in summer, there is very low ice, temperature goes up because of lower albedo.
But i have a good feeling about extent minimum and area, not saying next season will be great, but looking at temperatures the main difference between the 80s and now is the winter temperatures not the summer.
