The Weather in the Arctic Hotter Than in Europe

Jaime Aparicio, Reporter

As seen by climatologist Dr. Judah Cohen and the rest of the scientific community, they have recorded that the temperatures of the arctic North Pole were warmer than that of Europe. Within the current running season, subfreezing temperatures have been running across the European country from Poland to Spain.

Citizens of Rome were witnesses to snow falling in the area for the first time in six years. In another part of the Europe, Friday also saw Britain and Ireland being hit by a storm that brought snow and high winds of freezing temperatures. In general, the Arctic is above the freezing mark in the middle of the winter season. Dr. Cohen, author of a 2017 study that linked a warming Arctic to intermittent blasts of cold temperatures, had this to say about the anomaly weather in the region known as the polar vortex:

“It’s locking in that cold air at the high latitudes in the Arctic region.”

Dr. Cohen is referring to mother nature sometimes having bursts of freezing air escaping from a weakening polar vortex that acts in the same manner as a dam does. With the planet going through anomalies such as warmer seasons, the warmer temperatures weaken the vortex and allows the air to escape to close by countries, therefore causing those same countries to witness colder weather than usual.  With the growing research suggesting the cause of these anomalies as from global warming, it can only be foreseen that the polar vortex will continue to weaken.
