Miami Weather

The city of Miami or Magic City is located in the southern tip of Florida. The type of weather that you will find in the city of Miami qualifies as tropical monsoon. The summers are hot, long and humid while the winters tend to be short and warm. The winter is the dry season in the Miami weather and the biggest influence on the weather besides the city's location is the Gulf Stream followed closely by the Atlantic Ocean storms. The summer is definitely the rainy season and that rainy season does not stop until September. Hurricane season can affect the city of Miami and it runs from the first of June all the way through the 30th of November with a peak that lasts from August to September.

How Hot Do Summers Get?

A lot of people that visit Miami expect the summer temperatures to be unbearable. While it is true that Miami can experience hot and humid temperatures they do not tend to be extremely high. The hottest month on average is August when the average high temperature of the Miami weather is 90.7 Fahrenheit (32.6 Celsius). In some cases the weather can get a little bit hotter but the hottest temperature ever was only 100 Fahrenheit (38 Celsius). Visiting the city of Miami during the summer is a fun experience but in reality we at The Miami Weather.Net are obliged to tell you that summer temperatures can be felt throughout the year so visiting Miami means warm weather.

The Rainy Season

The summer is also a big part of the rainy season in the Miami weather. As soon as May arrives the amount of rain increases. By June the city of Miami gets an average of 9.66 inches (245.4 millimeters) of rain. For some reason the month of July sees the average drop almost 3 inches (76.2 millimeters) but by August the rainfall increases again. From the months of June through September most of the days in every month will experience a measurable amount of rain. You should stay updated with the rainy conditions by visiting www.themiamiweather.net if you are planning to visit the city of Miami anytime from May to October. The rainy season almost matches hurricane season in the Caribbean's peak season.

What To Expect From The Winter

The winter gets a lot of visitors to the city of Miami. That is because the Miami weather is still much better in the winter than most of the north of the country gets during the summer. The coolest month of the year is January which has an average high temperature of 76.1 Fahrenheit (24.5 Celsius) while at night the temperature drops to an average of 59.8 Fahrenheit (15.4 Celsius). It does rain during the winter but not nearly the amounts that you get during the summer. While you get almost 19 days of rain during August, during February that number of rainy days is reduced to 6.5. Checking The Miami Weather.Net will tell you if cooler temperatures are expected.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit the city of Miami depends on where you are coming from as you may want hotter temperatures or not so hot ones. We at www.themiamiweather.net believe that the best time to visit the city of Miami is the spring. The reason for that choice is that the temperatures tend to be warm enough that you will want to go to the ocean but not extremely hot. There is also the factor that hurricane season does not start until later in the year. The temperatures at night are still amazing. While in some cases you may need a light sweater, most of the time the weather in the city of Miami will be great.

Extreme Weather

Usually the extreme weather which Miami sees comes in the shape of severe thunderstorms and in some cases hurricanes. The location of the city of Miami makes it a prime target for tropical storms coming from the Caribbean. These storms usually happen between the months of June and November but hurricanes have been seen at other times of the year as well. Tornados are very uncommon in Miami with only 2 on record, the latest in 1997. When it comes to temperatures, it is very rare for the city of Miami to go below freezing. The lowest temperature ever recorded was 27 Fahrenheit (-2.8 Celsius) but that happened back in 1917. There has never been any accumulation of snow in the city of Miami.
