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.
