    To be fair the main problem is the wind moving the ice around and pressing against the ships, but this can't be helping the situation:

    Hi, was trying to access the sea surface temperature charts in the data centre but seems to be a technical fault. From the chart you show seems to quite colder than average waters fom the Gulf of Mexico all the the way across the Atlantic to the very cold waters of the Baltic, am I reading this correctly?

    I set up the same topic in the worldwide weather bit at the same time as you Mondy - great minds think alike!

    It has been quite a big problem this winter with this large sea ice extent in the Baltic sea at out latitudes.

    With ice all way down to Stockholm and further beyond, ice breakers have been working quite much this winter, but the recent days the extent has culminated, and it seems that it will not recover. But still, all inland lakes are frozen, and the archipelago of Stockholm too, and there is not much indicating that the ice in Stockholm will be gone by april!
