There's also this article from over a year ago describing basically the same experience:
Why did this article provide no context and not mention what the ground temperature has been and was expected to be, these numbers are meaningless to me apart from sounding vaguely high.
National Geographic from last year provides much better context for these numbers:
Although we studied global warming in school, I always interpreted it as something almost theoretical, that may gradually unfold over my lifetime, with polar ice caps gradually melting and temperatures occasionally rising. Seeing these extreme weather events unfold before our eyes is making me really fearful for the future and at the same time most individual people are quite powerless to do anything to change this future.
