If it seemed unusual to keep your air conditioning on this late into September, well, the National Weather Service says that's because it is.

Sunday was the third 90-degree day in a row, making it the longest 90-plus degree streak in Minnesota history and just the fifth time ever recorded that the temperature broke 90 degrees after 9/24.
