Absolutely. Is the car running hot or cold?

If you are in the northern hemisphere and outside the tropics, weather is getting colder outside. Your thermostat will spend a longer time closed than it would in the summer months. Thus, the differential in temperature from one hose to the other will be more noticeable. If your temperature gauge is showing normal operating temperature, then everything should be okay.
