How hot is it? It's so hot that Kanye West spoke at a Taylor Swift fan convention just so he could enjoy the chilly reception. Har, har! No? Sorry. 

Anyway, the past three of five days have seen record high temperatures, and today could set another record. The little weather widget at the top of our fine New Times website says it's 89 degrees at the time of this posting, which is just disgustingly unacceptable. Isn't it supposed to be autumn? 

Too bad, it's going to get hotter! CBS4 says temperatures could hit 93 degrees by midweek, but thankfully a massive cold front come to town by the weekend, which should drive the mercury down a bit. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
