I enjoy this forum so much but normally just lurk.

If I'm not mistaken, we've now entered a period where the lowest five years (2007, 2011,2012,2015,2016) are separated from the rest of the pack for the rest of the season until the September minimum. As of a few days from now I think this will also be true of NSIDC extent.

Since 2017 is within that top-five pack by both measures, it seems likely to me that 2017 will finish no "worse" than 6th place (somewhere in the top 6).
