Unseasonably cold weather is forecast next week across the Midwest and Northeast, parts of which are expected to see temperatures as low as the 40s and 50s -- and that's rare for July. Naturally, this has media commentators speculating that the much-vaunted "polar vortex," which was blamed for this winter's brutally cold and snowy weather across much of the eastern U.S., has returned.
Polar Vortex in Summer But while it's a catchy term that gets a lot of attention, the polar vortex isn't really to blame for the unusually cool weather that much of the nation is expected to see next week.

I heard it on the radio, which carries ABC news. The local radio station also mentioned it would be getting very cold next week.
I enjoy the cold much more than the hot humid weather we typically experience in the summer.
