This is when you’ll find the most inviting weather of the year, with average lows in the 50s to 60s—sometimes 40s—in the mornings and temps in the mid 70s-low 80s during the day. This is the dry season, so there’s normally very little rain. When packing, don’t forget sweaters (both light and medium in weight), a light jacket, and long pants as well as shorts. Book your flight and hotel accommodations as far in advance as you can to lock in the best rates and take advantage of special packages and deals that may be available.
Here comes the rainy season, and, as of June 1st, hurricane season. During this period, morning sun followed by afternoon showers or storms is the normal pattern, and residents know it well. Cotton and other lightweight fabrics, shorts, sandals and flip-flops, swimwear, and lots of sun protection should all be in your suitcase, because this is when the heat is on in South Florida.
