Summer-Like Heat Continues in South Florida

15 Apr 2020, 9:46 am

Summer-like heat continues to bake central and south Florida. After a string of record highs on Monday, more records were set on Tuesday.

Miami, West Palm Beach and Fort Myers were among the Florida cities that saw their temperatures soar into the low-to-mid 90s on Tuesday, continuing an unusually hot stretch for south Florida.


A sharp, southerly flow out of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico is keeping temperatures on the hot side of average throughout Florida.

The heat will stick around for south Florida through Friday as a cold front gradually pushes in from the north. Temperatures in Florida are expected to generally stay in the 90s through Friday before a brief cool down, only for temperatures to likely return to the 90s early next week. Scattered showers and thunderstorms could accompany the relative cool down.

The Climate Prediction Center’s (CPC) 6-10 day outlook product again puts Florida in its hotter-than-average zone for next week as well, a strong indicator that more summer-like heat is on tap for the Sunshine State.

Chris doesn't remember a time when that he didn't love the weather. When he was five years old, he wrote his first words, "Partly cloudy", in Ms. Benn's kindergarten class. According to Chris, it's been a love affair ever since, from teaching himself how to read forecast models at age 12, to landing at WeatherNation. Growing up in Greenwich, Connecticut, he started to go after his lifelong drea... Load Morem of becoming a meteorologist by predicting whether or not there would be snow days - turning him into Greenwich High School's "defacto weatherman". He turned that snow day-predicting website into a front page story a local newspaper, which in turn earned him a look at WABC-TV in New York, where Chris did the weather live on-air at the age of 16. He attended Boston University, where he continued being a "weather nerd", performing weather updates on the campus radio and TV stations, and doing the daily forecasts for the student newspaper. Following his studies at BU, Chris worked at Mile High Sports and ESPN Denver for four years while pursuing his certification in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Chris is a huge sports fan, rooting for the Rockies, Nuggets, Broncos, Avalanche and UConn. He frequently find links between sports and weather, including an investigative analysis he did in 2013, finding trends between Peyton Manning's play and game time temperature (he doesn't like the cold). Chris also enjoys running, playing any sport, socializing and periodically overeating at all-you-can-eat buffets.
