I'm not surprised.  It was a decent little storm we had yesterday, the first real wind in some weeks.  It warmed up considerably too, for the last 24 hours our temperature probe at the lab was reading -12.

The perennial question: when will the Nares Strait ice bridge break up?

Here’s a teaser: looks like the Navy HYCOM ice thickness maps show mass movement there next week.  Run 3/28/2013, valid 3/29 to 4/5.

See if this one plays out!

BTW, thanks for opening this thread, Sigmetnow!

Last week had some harsh winds down there in the strait, really fascinating that you guys had no wind up there. But then the NS is 500 km long, who would expect the same weather all around, eh? ;)

Sorry for not posting movies yesterday, but DMI wouldn't update.

Also, the 12th and 13th are missing - which makes my brain hurt.

And it also makes for very bad movies. So sorry folks.  :-\

Nice to see the Lincoln Sea freezing up and resisting the Nares.

Well, we had this before this season:

Lincoln becoming more 'static' now. Pieces are breaking out of an arch, getting sucked into the strait. As if it was winter...

Let's hope this time for real.

The complete lift-off of ice off of NNW Greenland, and the 'look' of the ice in the NE part of the Lincoln Sea (where MYI used to grow) makes this part of the Arctic look doomed: no strength, no resistance to tides, currents and winds.
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

Agreed, the arch struggling to form with so much mobility and change in direction further north.

We're definitely noticing it here on station.  We're still getting fog rolling in off the ocean occasionally, which doesn't normally happen by December...
