NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - It may sound worse than it is, but the Polar Vortex people in the Northeast heard so much about last winter is already concerning some as it gets set to return this summer.

FOX 5 Meteorologist Mike Woods says there is no need to worry, just be aware of the weather change to come.

"A big dip in the jet stream could set us up for severe weather mainly Tuesday," said Woods.

Stronger winds from the south will pull in cooler air that runs up to the warmer, humid air the Tristate region is currently experiencing.  The area could see heavy rain, strong winds and thunderstorms on Tuesday.

"The cool air makes a difference with what happens out there all together. Every once in a while we get a taste of it," says Woods.

In early January, the Polar Vortex caused a major temperature drop in the New York City area. On Monday, January 6, the morning temperature was about 57 degrees. By Tuesday morning, the mercury had dipped to six degrees!
