Miami’s Winter Heat Ties Record But Cooler Temps Coming

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida is known for its warm, sunny weather especially in the winter. But it’s been so warm and sunny, we’ve tied the record in Miami with 15 consecutive days with high temperatures in the 80s in January. The old record was set back in 2002.

Thursday, we’ll likely shatter that record since highs will soar to the low to mid 80s ahead of a cold front that will move through around Thursday evening.

Behind the front, temperatures will finally take a dive and South Florida will enjoy a nice cool down.

South Florida has been waking up with lows in the 60s and 70s but by Friday, morning lows will drop to the 50s and some inland areas may even fall to the 40s.

Highs on Friday will remain in the low 70s.

The average high this time of year is 76 degrees.

As we head into the weekend, lows will remain cool in the low 60s and highs will be where they should be in the upper 70s. High pressure should provide mostly dry, mild and breezy weather through the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday.
