I agree. I'm 49 years old and this is the craziest weather I can recall.
Two strange things happened in the Twin Cities area in the last month. Things I've never heard of ever happening before (and I've lived here most
of my life)...
1 - Minneapolis hit 104 degrees a couple of week ago. It was the hottest city in the entire USA. Minneapolis? What? Not Vegas, LA, Phoenix, Miami
or even Dallas? Nope...Minneapolis, Minnesota. Hottest place in the entire country. That is NOT normal.
2 - This past week we had an insanely hot day with unbelievable humidity. The local weather stations were joking about how our Dew Point was higher
than the Amazon that day. Seriously...a higher Dew Point than the Amazon!
Furthermore, I'm amazed at how wide-spread it is throughout the country. I've seen the maps and they seem seriously messed up to me.
On a final note, the other eerie thing about this pattern is how persistent it is. When these sort of brutally hot days arrived they would normally
be gone in a day or two. My A/C has been on pretty much non-stop for a week now. I've NEVER had my A/C on for a solid week before.
Simply put, this doesn't strike me as a normal pattern.
