The Arctic Ocean is dominated by a strong high-pressure system, rapidly melting the sea ice and impacting the Transpolar Drift System
von Andrej Flis am 12. Juli 2020 um 0:59
The Arctic sea ice melts every year from spring to early autumn. This year, the summer melt season is very strong. Currently, the Arctic sea ice extent and volume are near or at record lowest values in the modern records. That is largely due to the persistent high-pressure system over the Arctic Ocean.A strong, anomalous high-pressure system has been dominating the Arctic Ocean since late June. It has become a semi-permanent feature by now and is forecast to remain over the Arctic Ocean for at least two more weeks. A high-pressure system has been previously present over the Siberian sector since at least early May, and has contributed to record high temperatures over Siberia and also the surrounding Polar regions. Below is the temperature anomaly analysis for May and June. It reveals the Siberian “hotspot” and the warmer than normal Arctic Circle. Persistent high-pressure systems over the Arctic ocean are a real problem for the ice cap in summer. There is 24 hours of daylight over the North Pole during summer, and high-pressure areas provide clear, cloudless skies, accelerating ice melt without a break. The graphic below shows the daily Arctic sea ice loss. We can see since early July, that the daily ice melt rate has increased, coinciding with the onset of the strong Anticyclone. CURRENT ARCTIC ICEThe latest data reveals rapid sea ice loss over the Arctic. The first graphic below shows the rapid reduction of the Arctic sea ice extent since the beginning of July. The second graphic (by Zachary Labe) is a comparison of the current sea ice extent with the past years, where we can see that 2020 is currently at the lowest extent for the first half of July. The most unusually rapid melt was of course in the Laptev Sea, which was directly impacted by the record warm temperatures in Siberia. The current sea ice extent there is around the normal levels for August. High-resolution analysis from the MERCATOR system shows the latest sea ice […]
Tropical Storm Fay forms – expected to blast into New York on Friday afternoon

Here we go – the 6th tropical system of the 2020 hurricane season is born. Tropical Storm Fay formed along the Outer Banks of North Carolina this afternoon. It will continue towards New York tomorrow and further across the northeast US this weekend. It will deliver severe winds and flooding threat along its path.Both ground observations and NOAA hurricane hunters have found conditions with Tropical Storm force. Fay is currently supporting the maximum sustained winds of 40 knots (50 mph), gusting to 50 knots. The minimum central pressure is around 1010 mbar. The center of the low is located just east of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Tropical Storm Fay. Graphics: NOAAMost of the ongoing convection is still tied up across the eastern side of the storm, so the low will likely stay just off the coast while drifting due north over the next 24 hours. The tropical wave is supporting deep convection, feeding on the warmer Gulf stream in the Atlantic waters. Some additional strengthening is possible tonight. Visible true color satellite image.

The previous record was Franklin on July 22nd, 2005.UPDATE: #TropicalStorm #Fay has formed off the coast of #NorthCarolina this afternoon, seen here by @NOAA's #GOES16🛰️. @NHC_Atlantic expects it to strengthen slightly as it moves along the coast, and a #TropicalStormWarning is in effect from #NJ to #RI. #NJwx #NYwx #CTwx #RIwx pic.twitter.com/XUp2N88rfT— NOAA Satellites – Public Affairs (@NOAASatellitePA) July 9, 2020The visible satellite image reveals a cluster of the better-organized storms along the US East Coast. Fay has a well-defined area of circulation while drifting north along the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The system will be moving towards New York tomorrow afternoon (Friday, July 10th) and then weaken further inland. Visible satellite image. Graphics: Tropical […]
