NYC and the De Blasio administration successfully navigated its way through the first major snowstorm of 2014, thanks to mayoral stripteases, cozy bars, wet animals, Dante trolling, and of course, hot tub guy. Friday evening may have been the coldest night in a decade, but winter has no interest in leaving us alone now: much of the US, including NYC, is expected to feel the wrath of a "polar vortex" this week, which will send the temperatures back down into the single digits and below.

Besides being a great name for a band, a polar vortex is a counterclockwise-rotating pool of cold, dense air. "It's just a large area of very cold air that comes down, forms over the North Pole or polar regions ... usually stays in Canada, but this time it's going to come all the way into the eastern United States," explained National Weather Service meteorologist Phillip Schumacher. "It's the mother lode of cold air," said Weather Channel coordinating meteorologist Tom Moore. "On the heels of what will be the coldest air of the season, will be dangerous, life-threatening winds."

The midwest will get the worst of it, but temperatures are expected to plummet in NYC between Monday evening and Tuesday. We could be looking at temperatures in the single digits on Tuesday—and with wind chill included, it could be even colder than last night.
