A quick update for sea ice extent:
- Global Sea Ice is 70,000 sq km below the 1981-2010 mean.
- Antarctic Sea Ice is 728,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean and probably NOT on track to break the record for highest minimum. Day 40 was still a daily record (23rd of the year), but only by 2120 sq km.
- Arctic Sea Ice is 798,000 sq km below the 1981-2010 mean.
