On January 23, 2019, the sea surface off the coast of North America was 12.6°C or 22.6°F warmer than 1981-2011 (at the green circle).

The Gulf Stream carries ocean heat to the Arctic Ocean. It takes a couple of months for this heat to reach the Arctic Ocean and contribute to melting of the sea ice.
