West Palm Beach breaks heat record by 2 degrees
David Zierden, Florida’s state climatologist, remarked on Twitter today how most of central and South Florida has experienced temperatures of 85 degrees or higher for nine consecutive days. “We are off to by far the warmest start to November on record,” he said in an interview. “Rain has been deluging the western panhandle and northern Gulf coast, but a high pressure system has been blocking that from moving south.”...At least four Florida cities tied or surpassed their record high temperatures on Monday including Daytona Beach, Melbourne and Vero Beach. Orlando also set a record at 91 degrees, beating a 1911 high of set in 1911.
