What’s the weather like in Fort Lauderdale in January?
Located in the US state of Florida along the North Atlantic coastline, Fort Lauderdale is a coastal city with a humid subtropical climate. This brings warm temperatures all year round, but also means the city is quite wet. However, January is in the driest period, with most rain arriving over summer. Its winter temperatures still reach the mid-twenties, while the sea’s nice and warm and the sun shines for an average of seven hours each day. If you’re looking to escape the chilly UK winter, Fort Lauderdale is a great place to visit in January.
At this time of the year the average high temperature in Fort Lauderdale is 24ºC, cooling to 14ºC after dark. Although the daytimes are perfect for relaxing on the beach or exploring the Everglades, you’ll need some warmer layers for evenings out in the city. Just over 60mm of rain’s predicted during January, with seven wet days on average. Showers are usually short and sharp, so bringing a light waterproof is a good idea. For days at the beach, the sea measures a lovely 24ºC this month.
