The pole of cold is shivering in the deep freeze a little earlier this year. Following an exceptionally warm start to autumn, Siberia has turned bitter. This week has seen the first -50C of the season in the Northern Hemisphere (outside Greenland).

The coldest inhabited place on earth, Oymyakon dipped to -52C in recent days. That’s the lowest November value here since 2010.
