What is the polar vortex?
‘The vortex is a swirl of cold air that sits over the Arctic region. It's full of swirling eddies that, during winter months, can grow and extend farther south. It represents the
boundary of cold, polar air and warmer subtropical temperatures.’ - From the National Geographic.
