The Polar Vortex Phenomenon

This weekend and I had to go visit family up in Minnesota. I was expecting it to be cold, but when I wasn’t expecting some of the below zero temperatures I experienced. looking into it I found out it had to do with something called the Polar Vortex. Many of us down south have never heard of it, but it’s when part of the Polar Vortex over the North Pole gets warmer, making it weak and breaking off a piece of the vortex and sending it south, and this time it was sent to northeast and mid-west United Stated. Some of you might be wondering if that’s why it’s been in the forties in Florida, and you would be correct. But, there is obviously a greater affect up In Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and other similar places. Due to the unpredictability of weather, it can happen again or never again, but it’s nothing to be worried about. Al Roker was speaking about it and said to think about it as a freezing hurricane thousands of miles above us. Most specialists have been found saying that it’s hard to say whether or not this will happen again this winter, but and just as likely possible and not possible to keep you eyes peeled and your coats ready for more weather phenomenons this winter.
