MiamiHerald / Yes, it’s cold. Now we know it’s for real.
The official reading at Miami International Airport dipped below 50 Tuesday morning for the first time in nearly two years.
While the thermometer has dipped into the 40s parts of South Florida since the weekend, the airport reading is a milestone.
“This is the first time it has dropped below 50 degrees since Jan. 24, 2016 at MIA,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Larry Kelly. “The streak of consecutive degrees above 50 has ended — 687 days is a pretty long time.”
