CT SIA has been going up too in the past 2 days, and is now 89K below the preliminary max. But again, it's still 390K below the 2011 lowest max record which was reached on March 8th.

I just had a look at the numbers, Fish. 2015/2016 DJF is second lowest with 8489 km3, behind 2006/2007 with 8323 km3.

But as for now, another 24K uptick is reported for Arctic SIA. We'll see whether Antarctic SIA can compensate for that again tomorrow. Average daily decrease for the past 7 days is 43K, so it should be possible. But it's not. A small uptick of 9K is reported for Antarctic SIA, and so Global SIA went up by 33K and the difference with 2006 is now 148K again. In the meantime an uptick of 38K is reported for Arctic SIA.
Fraud is a strong word.. So is 'tampering'. It implies that people do something on purpose to get a particular result. And because GISTEMP doesn't deviate strongly from other temperature data sets, it means that all of them have been 'tampered' with. It's a conspiracy. Now, why would someone want to imply that? If we go that way, we might as well say that "something more substantial such as the Arctic sea ice" isn't "interesting and relevant to observe and analyze", because who knows how much all those area and extent data sets have been tampered with.
The way the station data has been tampered with in the 'homogenization' process in v3 makes their temperature record utterly useless. Are you accusing people at GISS of fraud, John?
Two years ago this resulted in a serious lull in ice growth (not that this means anything at this stage of the freezing season). Will be interesting to see if that happens again this year. The peaks are more sudden, whereas they were more gradual in 2013.

The AO is peaking quite a bit right now: Similar to 2013 on almost the same date: Are you watching this, John Christensen (you being the AO guy ;-) )?

Kris, I have no idea how this works because I comment as blog owner. I just posted a comment under my alias, but there was no security or captcha or anything. Why is that? BTW, when I can't read the captcha letters I just refresh them (there's usually a small refresh sign, an arrow going in a circle, somewhere) until I see something legible. Unfortunately I can't seem to do anything about this. Except for "allow commenters to sign in if they choose" instead of the option I have now: "require all commenters to sign in". Would that help?
