Big Black Blob!

What's the big black blob mean just west of Greenland in the weather charts below? Anyone?

I think it means it's super cold. I've just never seen anything like it before, maybe I've not been looking out for it or paying enough attention though.

Some major activity in the N Atlantic though for the next week or so. Anyone know how that big black blob is going to effect the storm production of Nova Scotia/Greenland/Iceland?

That's Svalbard, you know Spitsbergen, the coast takes a lot of turns so there's a lot of black ink involved.
