Heat wave hits North Pole days before Christmas

Just days before Christmas, there’s a heat wave at the North Pole — with temperatures reaching into the 20s on Thursday, December 22nd.

That’s a little bit colder than our weather here in Wisconsin, but it’s about 50° above average for the North Pole at this time of year.The average winter temperature at the North Pole is about 40° below zero.

The warmth should stick for a few days before more extremely cold air moves back over the region.
