Today was another scorcher in Miami. A new record was set for this date: 94 F. The old record was 90 F. back in the '80s. The weather man on local NBC 6 also just said that today was the hottest day ever so late in the year. What a crazy month!
We're going to have a low of 58 F. on Monday, high of 78 F. That's more like it.
This chart doesn't reflect the record highs we've had lately. (Click on chart to enlarge.) Miami is definitely getting hotter, and this chart is only for the month of October. Of the 31 days in the month, only 5 record highs were set before 1980. Seven record highs were set in the 1980s. Eight were set in the 1990s. And 11 were set in the 2000s. So it's not my sense of nostalgia growing up here or my imagination or just my increasing intolerance of hot weather.
