Arctic Ice update

Per my May 29 post, the Arctic ice situation is looking relatively healthy.   We have about a month until the melting stops and the re-freezing begins (of the sea water anyway).  Based on most datasets we are going to have the highest minimum in quite a few years.
While it may not be cold enough yet to re-freeze sea water, it IS cold enough to snow.  The maps below shows the snowfall accumulation in the Arctic over the next week:
