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.

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.
