The climate of Miami Beach (Florida - United States of America)
Miami Beach is often mistakenly seen as a part of Miami. However, officially they are both independent cities with their own administration. The pleasant subtropical climate causes winters to be warm and sunny and summers to be even warmer with the occasional cooling shower. This is why Miami has a Caribbean atmosphere which attracts many visitors every year. Most tourists visit South Beach, Ocean Drive and the Art Deco district. However, the central and northern part of Miami Beach have become increasingly popular over the past few years as you can tell by the many new and renovated apartment complexes where many Americans have bought a condo as a second home.

The winter is the high season in Miami Beach. From December till March many people spend their winter in Miami Beach. This is also the period when most events and fairs are held. The weather is sunny almost every day with daytime temperatures of 20-25 degrees Celsius (68-77 degrees Fahrenheit). During the night temperatures hardly ever drop below 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit). When it is extremely cold by Miami standards temperatures are about 10-15 degrees Celsius (50-59 degrees Fahrenheit). However, this is fairly uncommon.

From May chances of precipitation start to increase. Most precipitation falls in the form of showers after which clouds rapidly dissolve and temperatures may rise up to 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). When a tropical depression passes by it may be gray and rainy for a few days in a row; large amounts of precipitation may fall within a short period of time. Another extreme consists of the days on which temperatures may rise up to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). When this occurs humidity figures may be high as well causing things to feel muggy. From October/November humidity figures drop as well as temperatures and chances of precipitation.

Hurricane season is from June till November. During this period there is a risk of tropical storms, depressions and hurricanes in the entire Caribbean including Miami Beach. However, the risk of Miami getting hit is not as high as you may think. On average Miami gets hit once every few years. The amount of damage it may cause mainly depends on the strength of the hurricane. There is a greater likelihood of indirect discomfort caused by hurricane activity. When a hurricane passes Miami Beach at a few hundred miles there may be more clouds, rain and more wind.
