Arctic Sea Ice Extent Sept 19 2014 – -1,187,000 sq km below the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 261. Data here.

Looking even better for Day 259 to have been the minimum since it is now 80,000 lower than today (261).

A Rise of 27,000 sq km, Day 259 with 4.98339 million sq km is now the potential minimum (but I make no predictions since it has been a surprising year).
