On Wednesday's "Only in America" segment on "Piers Morgan Tonight," Morgan addressed America's obsession with the weather.
"Atmospheric conditions are not exclusive to this country. But what seems to be unique to America is the quite extraordinary obsession over them," remarked a perplexed Morgan.
Responding to weatherman Al Roker's "biblical" forecast earlier in the morning on the "Today" show, Morgan joked, "Al, you are scaring me! Next thing you'll tell me is that it may get even hotter in July!"
"Let me simplify things for everyone," offered Morgan. "In the summer, it's hot, in the winter, it's cold, and in between you're going to get rain, clouds, and the odd tornado. The weather's been like that in America for longer than America's existed. It's not 'news' – it's just a fact. So calm down, and carry on."
