Hudson Bay still has a LOT of ice

“Here is a comprehensive look at arctic sea ice covering the period 7-31-15 to 8-7-15.

With many floating buoy camera pics and objective analysis of the day to day situation.

Generally what he’s seeing during this period is more typical of September. “…I like to get, if possible, a “heads up”, in terms of whether the coming winter will be bad or not. Therefore the warmth of the water in Hudson Bay, northwest of where I live in New Hampshire, is of concern to me because our coldest winds come from the northwest. If Hudson Bay is warmer our northwest winds are warmer. It concerns me that that this summer those waters are so cold that a third of the bay still has ice floating in it. “

  1. Let’s bring same scenario to Great Lakes this time next year. That would be so Cool.Pun intended.

  2. Chile, August 7, 2015 (with video).
    Vehicles were under the snow on the way to Farellones.
    Tourists tried to climb to the ski resorts, which was not possible by the frontal system.
    120 tourists, mostly Brazilians, were rescued after being trapped on the way to Farellones, when they tried to climb to the ski resorts.
    The large amount of snow made it impossible not only for tourists to come to the centers to which they aimed, but also left a dozen cars in the snow, which so far have not been removed.
    The incident occurred because many of those who tried to climb it in vehicles that were not prepared and therefore could not move forward.
    According to Lt. Gonzalo Muñoz, people were trapped on the road and had to leave their cars on the route to be taken by 4×4.
    Tourists have yet to get off the ski resort Valle Nevado, where they are kept after being rescued.

    Argentina, August 7, 2015:
    Due to heavy rain and snow in the mountains, National Gendarmerie reported that the international route No. 7 is walkable to Uspallata for domestic tourism with mandatory carrying of strings must be placed if necessary.
    While from Uspallata to the mouth of the International tunnel it is impassable to all types of vehicles. White wind, heavy snow and freezing temperatures make that the visibility is very low to pass through this area. At the same time it reported that the international tunnel “Cristo Redentor” remains closed.
    The inability to maintain the bi-oceanic corridor makes clear that civilians residing in: Polvareda, Punta de Vacas, Puente de Inca and Villa las Cuevas, are isolated by land and many have decided to go into town until you pass the time predicted for this weekend.
    For his part, Marcelo Dapas, Civil Defence, announced that “there is evacuated, residents and tourists from the resorts are down on their own.”

  3. What an in depth look at the current state of the arctic with charts, graphs and cams.

    If you are a person like myself who is trained to read abstracts and introductions and more often than not won’t read an entire article based on whether an author can keep my interest.

    If so, make sure you click on the link and have a look at the site, this is 15 minutes that is well invested and informative.

  4. My site is fairly obscure, so I was wondering, “What the heck?!!!” when I got a huge surge of viewers. Now I understand, as I’ve traced it back to being mentioned here.

    We tend to be long-winded, and a bit boring, as we sit about and watch ice melt. I put a brief Hudson Bay update at the bottom of the post for “Ice Age Now” readers, and some may want to scroll down through all the other stuff to get to it.

  5. I wondered if the fact that there was still ice in Southern Hudson Bay was unusual, and stumbled across this chart from the Canadian Ice Service. I bet the poor public servants in this agency are less worried about their jobs these days since seems unlikely they will be ice free any time soon.

    This chart is the latest “Departure from Normal Concentration”. It has lots of blue areas meaning there is higher than normal ice, and several areas of the highest category, deep blue, on the chart. No mention of what “normal” means.

  6. Bostonites. You may be in for it. There is still ice in Hudson bay. No buffer left for the “polar vortex”.

    Global warming? Ice-breaker rerouted to Hudson Bay to assist commercial ships rather than doing research on global warming. A Limerick.
    Irony of ironies:
    CCGS Amundsen re-routed to Hudson Bay to help with heavy ice
    Worst ice conditions in 20 years force change of plans to icebreaker research program

    CBC News Posted: Jul 22, 2015 6:56 AM CT

    Instead of the North Baffin Bay
    the Amundsen did turn away.
    “Too much ice in July,
    all our models awry.”
    Must break Ice down in Hudson’s ice bay.

    A carefully planned, 115-day scientific expedition on board the floating research vessel, the CCGS Amundsen, has been derailed as the icebreaker was called to help resupply ships navigate heavy ice in Hudson Bay.
