November may have a cold reputation in some places, but much of Florida is sweating through a heat wave that is rewriting the November record books...The culprit for this Florida record November heat is a persistent area of high pressure in the upper atmosphere parked from the Bermuda Triangle into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Conversely, the jet stream has been diverted well north into eastern Canada and northern New England, keeping any cold fronts away from the Sunshine State.
