Miami morning low of 48 degrees sets new record

It's been 687 days since the last time Miami had a morning temperature of 48 degrees or lower.

The National Weather Service in Miami said Tuesday's morning low set a new record.

"So the streak is over," Local 10 News meteorologist Julie Durda said.

Temperatures in Miami also dropped below 50 degrees Tuesday for the first time since Jan. 24, 2016.

Sunday was a record-setting day in Fort Lauderdale, where the high temperature was just 62 degrees. That surpassed the previous record of 63 degrees set in 1981.

"So this is a significant cold front," Durda said.

There will be a gradual warm up throughout the day thanks to the South Florida sunshine.

High temperatures are expected to top out in the low 70s.

"We are expecting another chill because another front will be moving in," Durda said.
