Fall Heat Wave Leaves Miami a Hot Mess

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.
