Well, not easy to answer since the initial situation is not the same. If you have bare ice (with relatively low albedo compared to snow covered ice) it will melt pretty fast. The effect of meltponds (from melting snow) would only kick in later. But in the end, for the ice here the question is moot. It has formed so recently, that it will be gone soon, snow cover or not.

Small Comment: That are not melt ponds but spots of bare thin ice. It is warm but not that warm.
