Heat wave! South Florida sizzles, breaks temperature records (All Temperatures mentioned in Fahrenheit)
BY CARLI TEPROFFCTEPROFF@MIAMIHERALD.COM

Sunday’s 26th,  temperature climbed to 96 degrees at Miami International Airport, breaking the daily record of 93 set in 1988 and tying the record for the entire month of April, which was logged in 1971.
Miami was not alone in breaking heat records.

The temperature at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was 96 degrees Sunday afternoon, breaking the record of 94 set in 1988.

In Boca Raton and at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, the temperature hit 99 degrees.

The extreme heat — which feels even hotter because of the humidity — is rather unusual for April, Gregoria said. The average temperature is around 84 degrees.


“We are a good 10 degrees warmer than usual,” he said.

Rare Occurrence in Rawalpindi today, Monday....the day's high was 19c, while the overnight low was 20c...How ?
The Low was 20c till the cut off time. After that rains started and the temperatures dropped below 20c. By then the cut off time must have lapsed, and the mercury never crossed 19c in the day...in fact it dropped to 15c at Islamabad in the day....
