Over the weekend, the world’s northernmost weather station, located just 440 miles from the North Pole, warmed to 43 degrees Fahrenheit during what’s normally the coldest time of the year. That’s about 60 degrees above average for February. The rising temperatures, caused by a “warm air intrusion”, have left scientists in shock. Sea ice in the region is also at its lowest level on record.

“This is simply shocking. I don’t have the words”, meteorologist Eric Holthaus tweeted.
