Record High at Barrow
The temperature has been up to 33F so far today (Sunday) at Barrow, easily breaking the old record high for January 9th of 25F set in 2005. This is part of the huge slug of hot air pouring north around the building mega-high aloft.
Photo from 11am Sunday at Barrow; sunrise is still a couple weeks away. Looks like an open lead in the sea ice offshore.
