Miami is shattering heat records during a wildly-warm start to 2020, even by Florida standards

A look at simulated high temperatures on Tuesday by the American NAM model. (WeatherBell) — Michael Lowry (@MichaelRLowry) “As of [Tuesday], we have had 55 days so far this year with a 70 degree plus low; the old record was 51, and the average [year to date] is 23,” McNoldy said. Much of the warming bears the fingerprint of a changing climate; like nearly all major cities in the Lower 48, Miami has been warming — but, in Miami’s case, while also dealing with the growing dangers of climate-driven sea level rise. “It has been quite something,” McNoldy said. Miami could cool into the mid-80s Friday with chances for a few isolated showers, but temperatures will once again rebound to near 90 for the weekend. Jason Samenow contributed to this article.
