So, may be a good start for a record growth in oktober and november? The Atlantic side of the Arctic is allready on schedule and the Eastern Siberian Sea is mostly a piece of cake....
i like that Wipneus animation. Hope to see more...
thanks @Blaine, that make sense @Gerhard, i didn't know ice is able to suffer. We are able to compare storms. Sure we can, if we measure windspeed, duration, and direction and if we make record of it, you can compare. The effect of a storm depends on more parameters.

I found records of two buoys. http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/PAWS975420_atmos_recent.html and http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/PAWS819920_atmos_recent.html With windforce 4 to 5 Bft at the moment. It might help to get a better idea of the strength of the 'storm'

Thanks Neven. FYI http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_scale if you want to know the different between breeze/gale/or storm. I don't bother at all i you mix up these terms. That's why i ask for windspeed reports for conformation. I don't have them, thats why i ask. What i have seen till know is wind force up to windforce 6, small 7 at times. That's why i ask : Does anyone have seen more actual data in the area?

What is above your story Neven? Third storm. Do you have facts? Do you have windspeed measurements or wave heights in the area?

A strict meteorological definition of a terrestrial storm is a wind measuring 10 or higher on the Beaufort scale, meaning a wind speed of 24.5 m/s (89 km/h, 55 mph) I think it is a little bit silly to call every Low a storm. Let's say its windy.... Would we set new records or not? is Jenny's question. It's still speculation, but i don't think so. Melt will continue for a while but my guess is it will come close to 2009 or 2010. Another question is or it really matters or it will be close to 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 ,2011 or 2012 minimum....

jdallen_wa Thanks, yes it implies gales at the surface. But for how long...I suppose it was there for a short moment exactly in the centre. I don't see it back on any coastal station. And tomorrow? filling up already? http://nl.weather-forecast.com/maps/Arctic?over=pressure_arrows&symbols=none&type=wind

On this map we can see wind force. press the cursor to see tomorrow. http://nl.weather-forecast.com/maps/Arctic?over=pressure_arrows&symbols=none&type=wind

Is this a big storm? Can you confirm measured wind speeds? It looks a storm in a glass of water to me... http://nl.weather-forecast.com/maps/Arctic
