Re: North Atlantic Ice Hazards

30 years hmm that's interesting. You may not be aware but NW Europe is experiencing very high water temperatures this year. That equates to a lot of energy being stored up which can be transferred into wind and waves.

Looks like the forecasters are predicting a soggy July for us this side fo the pond.

Say it ain't so.

Every picture I've seen of Ireland was sunny and green, with nary a cloud to be seen

It is now, I'm there and the temperature has hit mid summers of 16degrees C, stinking hot around here. !!

Lastly, The Jimmy Cornell book has cautioned about going north of 40N, before one is east of 40W, check out his words an route AN141, fog and Ice are an issue on the great circle route and both are related to the cold Labrador current.
Jimmy Cornell is in Greenland and he hit exceptional winds from Northern Scotland. All easterly or north easterly instead of the usual westerly flows expected. He only hit northerly winds when a few miles south of Nuuk.

I notice today that the Azores high has moved into position. Interesting to see if it stays there.
