Arctic Sea Ice Extent is Only 240,000 sq km Below 1981-2010 Mean. Which is 2%. And now 2013 is higher than 2 years in the 1990s: 1996 and 1998.
Arctic Sea Ice Extent is well within one standard deviation for this day, and is now heading for the 1981-2010 mean.

Global Sea Ice is above the 1981-2010 mean by 600,000 sq km.
