When we get a lot of bad weather in North America what does it usually mean for the sea ice levels?

    That depends on what you consider “bad” weather. If you’re talking about inland rain, then that really doesn’t change sea ice levels at all. Sea ice can freeze directly from ocean water, so it does not need to be evaporated first. When snow falls on the polar ice cap, it can be compacted over time and eventually thicken into ice. However, unfortunately this is not happening due to increased global temperatures.
