Skylight 1B Warming Filter

What is the difference between Skylight 1B Warming Filter and a regular Skylight filter? I saw this on Amazon and was wondering. Is there a big difference in a 10.00 and a 20.00 filter?

The skylight filters are just slightly pink (red), and the 1b is a subtle notch past the 1a. I'm not sure about skylight without a or b designation, maybe the default is 1a?

I recall reading somewhere that there is a 100ēK difference between the two. I don't know if this is what you are looking for as an answer.
