Sounds just like winter of 2021. The hottest summer in history was in 2011.

This article from KXAN makes a good case for a long hot and dry summer in 2021..

This is kind of a mic drop link. It’s science. And we’ve had rough years. I was in SA in 2011 and I don’t recall this winter storm at all, but I remember it being ungodly hot in the summer and the fires.

Jet streams aren't systems in the same way that cold fronts, warm fronts or dry lines are. They are hat carry weather from place to place. They don't "die off." They will be stronger, they will move north and south and will dip and retreat north and south. I've been trying to take a step back from commenting on some things, but this is just non-sense. https://scijinks.gov/jet-stream/

This is true when not accounting for global warming, but Jetstreams can be effected both in strength and location by climate change. By dieing off I meant severely weakened, not entirely dissipated, but to be rendered non-effective.

Climate scientists have hypothesized that the jet stream will gradually weaken as a result of global warming. Trends such as Arctic sea ice decline, reduced snow cover, evapotranspiration patterns, and other weather anomalies have caused the Arctic to heat up faster than other parts of the globe (polar amplification). This in turn reduces the temperature gradient that drives jet stream winds, which may eventually cause the jet stream to become weaker and more variable in its course.[57][58][59][60][61][62][63] As a consequence, extreme winter weather is expected to become more frequent. With a weaker jet stream, the Polar vortex has a higher probability to leak out of the polar area and bring extremely cold weather to the middle latitude regions.

If you say so.

I guess we should throw in the apparently never-ending upward spiral of housing costs here in cenTex.
