It’s summer in Miami — and the temperature outside definitely feels that way.
The heat index across South Florida, which factors in relative humidity with the actual temperature outside to estimate how hot it feels, broke triple digits Tuesday in several cities around the region, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service issued a heat advisory Tuesday for Miami-Dade and Collier counties until 6 p.m.
Miami and Fort Lauderdale each clocked in at 103 degrees, while West Kendall registered 102 degrees on the index. Residents in Opa-locka felt the heat soar to 110 degrees, and in Homestead, the conditions outside felt like a roasting 111 degrees. The actual temperature is forecast to rise to the low- to mid-90s at the afternoon peak.
Nor is South Florida likely to feel relief. The forecast predicts continued high temperatures for the rest of the day, with some chance of thunderstorms and showers later in the afternoon, according to the weather agency.
