Miami Misses Warmth Record

January 17, 1:20 p.m.

Miami missed the record number of consecutive 80 degrees days by 1 degree. Rain hit the area, dropping the temperature.

While the rest of the people in the United States shiver, Miami will likely break the record for number of consecutive days above 80 degrees on Thursday. Miami's January record of consecutive days above 80 degrees is 15, which was set in 2002. As of 11 a.m. Wednesday, Miami tied their January record.

If the heat continues Thursday as expected, Miami will break the record with 16 consecutive days above 80 degrees. However, it's not likely that the record number will go any higher. From Thursday night into Friday, cool air will hit South Florida, bringing lower temperatures.
