The North Pole isn't near as cold as it typically is this time of year, with a storm pushing temperatures to 50 degrees above normal.

The same storm that sparked tornadoes and flooding in the United States last week is bringing warmer air from the south and briefly pushed the temperature above freezing, according to The Atlantic. Such temperatures are more common during the summer.

As a result, the temperature at the North Pole is actually warmer than it currently is in Chicago, The Washington Post notes.


It is only the second time since records have been kept that the North Pole was above freezing in mid-winter.

No permanent weather stations are at the North Pole, but information from satellites and surrounding surface observations can be used to estimate temperatures at the pole, the Post reported.
