More heat on the way as North Pole temps spike by 30 Celsius

Things are heating up in the Arctic, yet again, this week, as one storm has already caused temperatures near the North Pole to spike by nearly 30C on Wednesday, and even more heat is on the way in the days to come as they will be approaching the freezing mark.

That may not seem like anything remarkable, but right now, in early February, in the deep darkness of the Arctic winter, 0C is roughly 30C above normal for what thermometers should be reading for that part of the world.
