MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – We all know it’s dry. Now it’s getting hot in South Florida, hot enough to break records, as the cold fronts that made winter mostly pleasant are starting to become less frequent, and much weaker, in the Sunshine State.
CBS4 Meteorologist Jeff Berardelli said Miami’s high for 89 Sunday tied the record high for this date in 1984, and with even warmer temperatures expected for Monday, Berardelli said there is a good chance we could break the current record of 89, set in 1946.READ MORE: NBA fines Miami Heat $25,000 for violating 'bench decorum'

Before that happens, the front could being in some badly needed rain, but unlikely enough to have any effect at all on South Florida’s growing drought.MORE NEWS: Miami ex-Proud Boys leader Henry 'Enrique' Tarrio to stay jailed until Capitol riot trial
