JUST IN: Weekend heat records broken across South Florida

It was a warm weekend, both during the day and even after the sun went down.

On Sunday morning, temperatures broke or tied heat records throughout South Florida as overnight lows really didn’t drop that low.

At Palm Beach International Airport, the temperature dropped only to 79 degrees, tying the previous “record high minimum” temperature set for June 11 in 2012.

That’s a full 5 degrees above normal for West Palm Beach, where the typical overnight temperature this time of year drops to 74 degrees.

In Miami, the low temperature Sunday morning only dipped to a balmy 82 degrees, breaking the previous record of 80 degrees set in 2010.

And in Naples, the low temperature fell to 78 degrees, tying the old record of 78 degrees set in 2010.

This morning, West Palm Beach may be on the way to breaking another overnight heat record. As of 7:30 a.m., the hourly temperature dipped to just 81 degrees, which would tie a 2015 record.

As of 2 p.m., the high in West Palm Beach today was 87 degrees. The normal high temperature is 88 degrees.

Sunrise over Palm Beach Monday, June 12, 2017.
