Welcome to the Baltic Sea Ice Services
Only minor changes occurred in the ice situation. In the Bay of Bothnia the ice moved eastwards and the lead
on the Finnish side has narrowed.
In the Bay of Bothnia there is up to 70cm thick fast ice in the northern archipelagos. In the north there is
mostly very close, up to 60cm thick drift ice. In the east the ice is difficult to force and pressure occurs.
South of the heavy ice in the north there is mostly open water at sea. South of about 62°N the fast ice still
present in sheltered region is becoming or is rotten. In the north-eastern part of the Gulf of Finland there
is up to 40cm thick ice and ice is also still present in the northern part off the Gulf of Riga.
