Interesting days. Because the ice is so thin there can be rapid changes on a day to day basis, plus which things appear just weird. A combination of cold temperatures which are just starting to break and a long lasting cyclone have broken the ice up near the pole and over by the Northern Sea Route along the Russian coast. For an indicator of the interesting days to come look at today's AMSR2 sea ice map
Even a higher latitudes than 85N there is a considerable area of broken up ice. The Russian coast appears ready to clear while over on the Canadian side, the central channel of the Northwest passage is breaking up but outside of the islands the ice cover is almost complete, or as the Stoat says, a seaicing we shall go.
