It was colder in South Florida than it was in Maine this morning. But was it a record?
The first thing you did that Saturday morning - before you even made your coffee?
Bet you should check your phones to see what the temperature was if you live in South Florida.
You saw the mid-1940s in Miami-Dade and Broward, about 46 degrees in Kendall at 7 a.m., with wind chills as low as 39 degrees in Pompano Beach and 41 degrees in Opa-Locka, reported CBS4 meteorologist Jennifer Correa.

If Sylvester Stallone had woken up early to unpack his new home in Palm Beach County, which was about 43 degrees, he might have thought he'd bought a lakefront property in Caribou, Maine, where it was actually warmer than south Florida: 47 degrees there, the National Weather Service in Miami said.
Even the Florida Keys felt the chill of the Christmas cold front, which made Boxing Day morning even colder than South Florida's coldest Christmas since the mid-1980s.
The temperatures along the Keys island chain were between 58 degrees in Key West at the southernmost point and 55 degrees in North Key Largo, reported WSVN meteorologist Jessica Fernandez.
Was that record cold for Miami?
No, no cold records have been broken in South Florida, said Meteorologist Paxton Fell of the National Weather Service in Miami. The record low for South Florida was 32 degrees in 1906, she said. Theodore Roosevelt was the US President and John Sewell was then the third mayor of a young Miami.
Saturday's cold wasn't the coldest day of 2020 in South Florida either, Fell said, noting that Miami woke up in January with temperatures in their lower 40s.
What about New Years Eve in South Florida?
A gradual warming trend will begin later on Saturday, though Fell said some parts of south Florida could still see lows on Sunday mornings in their upper 40s.
The maximum values reach 63 degrees on Saturday and the minimum values in the upper 50s at night. After a cool start on Sunday morning, the temperatures are aiming for a maximum of 71 degrees in the afternoon and a minimum of 65 degrees on Sunday evening, according to the weather service.
Otherwise you can expect mostly sunny skies during the holiday week. Your next best chance of rain is New Years Eve and New Years Eve - Thursday and Friday - when the chance of rain is currently 40%.
According to the weather service, temperatures between 67 and 73 degrees will occur in South Florida in late 2020 and early 2021.
