6It is a Polar Vortex
These are usually found in the North Pole and is a band of really strong winds found up in the atmosphere. They are able to trap cold air around a certain region and this air circulation is considered to be a weather pattern and not just a storm. This was first seen in America in 2014 when the media started using the term ‘Polar Vortex’.
7How did it come so far?
Polar Vortex is known to only happen in the North Pole but they are also known to sometimes move further south. In 2014, a frigid spell took over America and the first use of polar vortex was used. When it hit Chicago, the temperatures dropped down to a freezing 10°F. This has been reported to be colder than Antarctica.
Yes, the temperature is so low that the insides of an egg can actually get frozen and when you crack them, the shell will come completely off. This may look like a bowl of boiled eggs but in fact, these eggs are completely raw and uncooked. This can only be experienced in very cold temperatures like the Arctic or Antarctic.

This image of a bottle of frozen Vodka just goes to show how cold the temperature is. Vodka usually freezes at -16°F so the temperature has got to be lower than that.
