Cold Up There

It's been a warmish Spring on the Arctic Ocean, and melting is well underway, with the Bering and Okhotsk Seas already almost completely ice free.  There is one big cold spot though - Northeastern Canada.  There was a huge snowfall there this Winter, and even as snow is rapidly vanishing in Alaska, Western Canada, Siberia, and even on the Arctic Ocean itself, snow and cold persist there.

Is this likely to have a significant effect on the melt season?  Beats me, but Hudson bay melt is a bit slow, but it always melts completely.  Some of the thickest ice likes to pile up in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, so that might be affected.

Final melt out is depends on unpredictable weather, but if I had to guess, I would predict a top three melt out for this year.
