What’s the weather like in Miami in December?

Miami’s in the southeast of the United States close to the Tropic of Cancer. This means the city has warm weather all year round. Although it’s winter, you’ll get lots of high temperatures and plenty of sun in December, which is the driest month of the year.

Tropical climate

Miami’s tropical climate means temperatures don’t change much through the year. You’ll get more rain over the hotter summer months, when there’s also frequent thunderstorms because of the high humidity. The North Atlantic Ocean will help to keep you cool and comfortable in December.


The average high in Miami’s 24ºC in December, with things staying quite pleasant in the evenings, which cool to 17ºC. The sea temperature stays at a warm 25ºC, so it’s perfect for swimming, while humidity’s low. There’s 43mm of rain over six days. You can look forward to 11 hours of daylight each day with seven hours of sunshine at a moderate UV level. The sun rises at around 7am and sets at about 5.30pm.

Things to Do

The weather’s still ideal in December for you to head to Miami’s beaches; it is in the ‘Sunshine State’ after all. Try popular South Beach or Haulover Beach for soft white sands and great surfing. A couple of miles north of there’s Sunny Isles Beach. Go to Lummus Park Beach for volleyball, or Bal Harbour where you can hang out with the well-heeled folk. Head to the wonderful Everglades, or visit the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral. Spend some time in Little Havana for a dose of the local Cuban culture.
