I remember last summer whileI remember last summer while we did have a record low minimum, by autumn the sea ice grew at a very rapid rate. In fact I believe it could have broken a record for GROWING so fast! Then during the winter 2012-13 there was very cold air trapped into northern Canada and Alaska and as we got into the heart of winter the dam broke and cold air came flooding south! I believe it's going to be the same case this year. During the fall the bone chilling air will continue to build in the arctic and by November I do expect winter to settle in for good. By no means am I a weather expert but I have been around long enough to know what happens when we have cold arctic years. I remember the 70s and 80s having some brutal winters here in VA
