A milestone...sort of

Tomorrow (Aug 23rd) the sun will set for the first time since April on the area half way between the Arctic circle and the north pole (where the sun will not set until the Fall equinox), at approximately 78N.  Consequently, this is the period where Arctic temperatures begin to rapidly drop off.

And consequently, this is the period where the Arctic sea ice melts begins to decelerate (if it has done so already).
