With all the cold weather around here, figured I would spread some good news. At least Santa is staying warm!

Pre-Christmas melt? North Pole forecast to warm 50 degrees above normal Thursday

Computer models project that on Thursday, three days before Christmas, the temperature near the North Pole will be an astronomical 40-50 degrees warmer-than-normal and approaching 32 degrees, the melting point.

On some forecast maps simulating Arctic temperatures, the color bar does not even go as high as predicted levels.
