Miami Climate and Seasons
Among the many American cities, Miami is distinguished by a tropical climate, this means that you will find pleasantly warm winters and rather sultry summers. The weather is sunny practically all year round, although to a lesser extent (obviously) during the winter period. One of the most interesting things is that any season is good for a swim in the sea.
Il best time for a stay in the city it is spring, from March to May, with temperatures similar to the summer ones but without the sultry heat typical of the following months. In fact, summer is very long (from June to August but sometimes extends), characterized by humidity and often hit by sudden rains and showers, which nevertheless act as an interlude to a predominantly sunny climate. Winter is instead a pleasant surprise, with a pleasantly warm climate and with the possibility of rather rare rainfall.
