Warm Winter: No Ice in the Baltic Sea

Normally, the Baltic is Frozen this time of year

Normally this time of year, the northern section of the Baltic Sea (the Gulf of Bothnia) and the Gulf of Finland have a lot of ice cover, similar to the above, if not completely covered.

This year, both bodies of water are almost completely ice-free.

Meanwhile, last year it was Hudson Bay in northern Canada that was near ice-free until much later in winter than usual. This year, Hudson Bay is close to normal.
