Did it feel hot Wednesday for a February in Fort Lauderdale?
The thermostat hit 86 degrees, breaking the citys previous record of 85 degrees set in 1935 for a February 13.
Theres only a handful of those old records left on the books, said National Weather Service meteorologist Stephen Konarik, of the 78-year-old record that fell to our current unseasonably hot weather.
One still standing was also set this week in 1913 89 degrees for a February 12.
But the record breaking heat for South Florida is coming to an end.
Cooler temperatures are in store for this weekend. Lows Saturday will be in the mid-40s and the high Sunday will be in the mid-60s.
Rain is likely as low temperatures Thursday and Friday will dip into the 60s.
