Polar vortex sinks south

590x393_11101954_pvThe coldest blast of air so far this autumn is impacting much of North America this week bringing snow and icy temperatures to the middle of the continent.

Thanks to a monster storm in Alaska producing 15-metre waves, the polar vortex has sunk south with the Prairies struggling to reach highs of -10 C and snow moving into the American Midwest.

Colder temperatures are in store for Southeast New Brunswick later this week according to Environment Canada with highs barely above freezing under mostly clear skies.
