The climate of Miami (Florida
- United States of America)
Miami is the number one winter sun city in America. 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.
The winter is the high season in Miami. From December till March many
people spend their winter in Miami. 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.
Miami is a popular destination for people who like to
explore the state of Florida by car.
Renting a car in Miami gives you complete freedom in
transportation. It allows you to explore attractions anywhere in
Florida without the difficulties of public transport.
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. 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 at a few hundred miles there may be more
clouds, rain and more wind.
