For the past three mornings, the low at Key West has been 84 degrees. These are the warmest low temperatures ever recorded in Key West during the month of October.
Wednesday, record highs were also set in Miami and Key West. Miami was 93-degrees which beat the old record of 92-degrees and Key West was 91, which beat the old record of 90-degrees.
The main reason for all the extra heat is a strengthening area of high pressure in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere which is putting a lid on most afternoon rain and is holding back any chance of a cold front getting close to South Florida, according to CBS4 Chief Meteorologist David Bernard at cbs4.com
