As I sit here watching rain fall at nearly 1 inch per hour at my house, I came across two interesting pieces of information. First, here is a video clip of Joe Bastardi at Accuweather discussing the global sea ice situation and the near term outlook for global temperatures.

It’s an interesting look at what’s happening in the face of a report from NOAA that June was the hottest on record based on surface station data. But, you should also be aware that the June satellite data showed global temperatures only slightly above historic norms.

So, what is going on at the North Pole? NOAA has a webcam up there

There is a bit of water present at the North Pole, but I think that might be from an actual rain storm that passed through. If you watch the video, it seems likely. Certainly not as melted as it was in the well-known submarine photos.
