Weather is way too hot

Weather is way too hot today. Upper 80’s is fine, well and good..on July 16th, not April 16th.
The weather has just been screwy for months. Winter really was nothing more than a cold spring..the number of below freezing days were very few, the previous fall had been warm…the previous summer had been moderate with few very hot days. All atypical for New York’s “bake and freeze” climate.
Today, Southern California (17 days to go!) was 20 degrees cooler than here.
