Oddens ice tongue is an area of sea ice off the Greenland coast near Jan Mayen, (orange box below). Doesn't seem to form nowadays though.

Quite a big loss of snow in Southern Sweden and Eastern Europe over the last 7-10 days.Hopefully that will reverse and we shall see more of Eastern and Central Europe be snow covered soon and then the continent can cool more ready for the Beast from the East to come to our shores mid-late Jan lol!!
