The Weather in the Miami Beach area

They don’t call Florida the Sunshine State for no reason! With great sunshine year-round, Florida’s temps vary modestly depending on season. Miami / Fort Lauderdale weatherSummer brings temperatures between 81°F – 91°F, while winter temperatures drop between 61°F – 75°F with the rare, occasional frost thrown in when the jet stream pushes really low. As the summer heats up, so too does the chance of rain, high humidity and the risk of tropical storms. Understanding Florida is a warm climate overall, if you are from the upper states or Canada, even those winter temperatures are shorts and sandals season while the locals are bundled against the cold. Remember, you’re heading to the beach!
