Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is currently running at 1.48 million sq km above the 1981-2010 mean.
Here is a preview of the end of the year stats.
As of yesterdays data, the mean for the whole year is .84 million sq km, which will easily break the previous record of .59 million sq km set in 2008.
The maximum daily anomaly of 1.67 million sq km was set on December 20 which is pretty remarkable considering that is the start of summer.
The maximum anomaly percent was 33.5% which was set on March 10. The 1981-2010 mean for that day is 3.5 million sq km., but on March 10 the extent hit 4.7 million sq km.
