Wow. One record was broken by 25F!!!!

1695 Low Max Records Broken or  Tied From Sept 11 to Sept 20 according to the NOAA.

A “Low Max” means that the maximum temperatures for the day was the lowest it has ever been. This indicates daytime cooling.

Antarctic Sea Ice AREA Near All-Time Record Too – Day 255 – 29,600 sq km Short of All-Time Record

Update: An all-time record was set the next day

I usually graph Sea Ice Extent. Every once in a while I graph Sea Ice Area.

“A simplified way to think of extent versus area is to imagine a slice of swiss cheese. Extent would be a measure of the edges of the slice of cheese and all of the space inside it. Area would be the measure of where there is cheese only, not including the holes. That is why if you compare extent and area in the same time period, extent is always bigger.”

Antarctic Sea Ice Area is within 29,600 sq km of an all time record (which occurred in 2007 at 16.23238 million sq km).

Day 255 is 5th behind 2 days in 2007 and 2 days in 2012.
