North Pole Reaches 50 Degrees Above Average

A storm system that’s recently brought extreme weather across the country also caused temperatures to rise about 50 degrees Fahrenheit above normal in the North Pole today.

The North Pole “unfroze” today, experiencing a temperature high of upwards 40 degrees Fahrenheit, a temperature that’s “unheard of” in the area during winter months, according to ABC News meteorologist Melissa Griffin. It’s usually minus 15 to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit there at this time of year.

The storm system drawing warm air to the North Pole is the same one that caused recenttornadoes in Texas, winter weather in the Midwest and heavy rain and flooding in the Mid- and Southeast, Griffin said.
