Greenland Still Experiencing Unusally Warm Weather

In an interesting addendum to my post on May 31 about abnormally high temperatures recorded in Greenland recently (revisit that post here), Dr. Jeff Master's now reports that the coldest weather station in Greenland over the last 12 years has experienced above freezing temperatures on five separate days this month alone. The Summit Station, located 415 miles north of the Arctic Circle at an elevation of 10,552 ft. had previously only experienced four days above freezing in the entire 12 year period from 2000 to 2011. Yikes - it's heating up in the Arctic.

Just watched the News over here in Scandinavia about this very story. They also referenced a very well known glacier in which a large giant junk of glacier broke off and will float out as an Iceberg to enter the New Foundland area later on.
