The climate of Fort Lauderdale (Florida - United States of America)
Fort Lauderdale is located north of Miami and has a subtropical climate with warm, fairly wet and muggy summers and mild and dry winters. This pleasant climate, even during the winter temperatures hardly ever drop below 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit), causes Fort Lauderdale to be very popular among Americans as a winter sun destination. Most precipitation falls during the summer and fall. During this period precipitation figures may be high because of active tropical depressions. Hurricane season is from June till November. During this period there is a risk of hurricanes, tropical storms and depressions in the entire Caribbean (including Fort Lauderdale). The risk of Miami Beach getting hit by a hurricane is not as high as you may think; on average Miami Beach gets hit once every few years. The amount of damage it may cause mainly depends on the strength of the hurricane. Chances of indirect discomfort caused by hurricane activity is much higher in Fort Lauderdale. When a hurricane passes Fort Lauderdale at a few hundred miles there may be more clouds, rain and more wind. Especially on the beach winds may be fierce then.
