Why don't hurricanes form in polar regions?

1 Answer

Because polar regions are much cooler. Hurricanes form in warm waters i.g the gulf of mexico. The warm water creates a high and low pressure, resulting in the air moving rapidly in a spinning motion. The warmer the water, the more strength it will have. When it usually reaches land, it dies within a matter or days due to the fact that little pressure is created on land. more
