Always sunny Florida suffered from low temperatures that forced many citizens to wear warm clothing.
A wave of cold accompanied by icy winds caused the thermometers in Miami (USA) to register minimum marks this Monday, such as 47 degrees Fahrenheit (8.3 degrees Celsius) last morning, and that the Miamians had to take out the outerwear they almost never need to wear.
Low temperatures were also noted in the cities of Fort Lauderdale (46 degrees F or 7.7 C), Pembroke Pines (44 F or 6.6 C) and Key West (59 F or 15 C), also in the south. from Florida.
At 07:00 local time, the temperature in the Miami International Airport (MIA) area was 46 degrees Fahrenheit (7.7 degrees Celsius), while parts of Broward County, north of Miami, experienced a temperature drop to hover around 30 degrees Fahrenheit, with frost warnings.
The 46 degrees Fahrenheit registered in the MIA exceed those of last December 26 (47 degrees F or 8.3 C) and is the lowest so far in the winter season, according to Local channel 10.
With temperatures this low in South Florida it won’t be unusual see iguanas fall from the trees that lose grip on the branches and trunks, although they revive once the sun’s rays reach them.
Meanwhile, central Florida, where the tourist city of Orlando is located, also recorded the lowest temperatures this season in some areas.
The Last January 19, it was exactly 45 years since the only snowfall recorded in the history of Miami.
A strong cold front crossed the state of Florida and the temperature in South Florida dropped to around 32 degrees Fahrenheit (close to 0 degrees Celsius), which was enough to “cool” the environment and cause snowflakes to fall in areas far from the coast. (I)
