Hottest temperatures ever recorded in South Florida

A heat advisory is in effect until 7 PM tonight and we could be near the all-time record highs.  That means we will be near the hottest temperatures that have ever been recorded in South Florida.  The  highest ever recorded in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale was 100 degrees back on July 21, 1942 and August 4, 1944 respectively.  West Palm Beach's highest recorded temperature was 101 degrees on July 21, 1942 as well.  Yesterday records were broke all across South Florida and Ft. Lauderdale shattered their old record by 4 degrees with a high of 98, hottest June temperature ever recorded.

Factor in the humidity with these record setting temps and it will feel like it is in the 105-110+ degree range.  That is why the Heat Advisory has been issued by the NWS office in Miami.  The hot weather could cause heat related illnesses including heat exhaustion, heat cramps, and heat stroke if safety precautions are not followed.  Outdoor activities, especially strenuous ones, should be limited, stay out of direct sunlight, drink plenty of fluids, and stay inside air-conditioned rooms.  Also, be sure to check on friends and neighbors who may not have air-conditioning as they may be susceptible to heat illness even if they are not spending time outside.  The elderly and the very young need extra attention during these times.  Never leave young children locked in a car because the heat that builds up inside could be deadly after only a few minutes.

If the heat isn't enough, expect a round of strong to severe thunderstorms to develop late this afternoon into the evening hours.

Do you live alone?  If not does you family have to suffer cause your cheap.   Believe me - Lack of air conditioning is CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT.

I can do without a lot of things, but Air Conditioning isn't one of them.  I get MEAN WHEN I'M HOT >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

What I'll do when the SHTF I don't know.  God help my husband.

I think Air Conditioning is one of the worlds greatest inventions!!!!!

Actually most people, even those in South Florida, did not have air conditioning until late 50's early 60's.  I remember my father buying our first air conditioner.  It was a Sears Coldspot window unit.  We cooled one room.  The whole family gathered in that room when we were home.  Great family memory!
