Cold Snap Caused By Polar Vortex But Will Be Short Lived

01/29/19 – 3:39 P.M.

We have heard plenty of reports about the upcoming bitter cold days and it’s all due to a polar vortex. WTOL 11 meteorologist Ellyn Fritz explained where these temperatures are coming from.

She added that we will go from bitter cold below average temperatures for this time of year to well above the average temperatures in just a few days. Fritz explained that a warm system from the system will push out the cold and we could see a high of about 50 degrees on Sunday.
