Global temperatures reached an all-time high last summer, and now Tampa is breaking its own depressing heat-related records.

According to the National Weather Service, Monday’s lowest temperature in Tampa was 74 degrees, making it the 157th consecutive day above 70, which is a new record.  

This is now the deepest stretch into fall for Tampa residents not seeing temps below 70, and if it feels eternally hot that’s because the last time it was even relatively “cool” outside it was May 17, when it was a brisk 67 degrees.

However, this may all come crashing down tonight, as a cold front is expected to move through Tampa this evening with a good chance of temps reaching the upper 60s
