It can get cold once or twice a year in Miami. Was born and raised in Miami and now go to college in Washington DC. To think I warmed up my car when it as 40F outside! Now when is anything above 45F during the winter I am going out in a long sleeve shirt happy about how warm it is. Miami is a sub-tropical climate so it does get it cold snaps but nothing compared to anywhere else in the US. Olnly place in with a more mild climate than Miami would be the Tropical climate of [SIZE=3]Hawaii. On the coast it will never get cold or too hot. By Biscayne Bay and the Ocean temps will never go above 100 or under 40 they might have gone under 40 before but not to my knowledge. The ocean keeps Miami Warm in the winter and cool during the summer. The humidity though can make it feel 110F+ daily. [/SIZE]

The warmest it's ever been in Miami has been 98 degrees in 1974 and the coldest its ever been is 27 degrees in 1917.

That is really interesting how temperatures fluctuate like that. IMagine how cold it was in Jacksonville or even in the Midwest if it was 27 deg in Miami...

Snow in Miami?

Yes, there's snow in miami. Why you think we name 40th ST, Bird Road? We have the freshest snow out of any city in the US. 4 shipments weekly, 1 drop in the everglades, 3 up the miami river. lol

It "snowed" in 1977 and I happened to be down here from NYC with my parents visiting family .. I think I was eleven years old

Christmas weather is usually mild and balmy ( 78 degrees ) I love it ... but many people do not .

I've lived in florida all my life the highest ever was 98 in 1998, and it has snowed 3 times in recorded history, in '77 the most famous even though it was light to moderate flurries that only piled up a little on cars, in '81 late at night the temp was only 41 but doppler showed snow fall that was a little heavier than 77 but was still light that turned into rain after falling for 23 mins, and finally '89 which happened mostly in kendall and near krome avenue where 1/4 of an inch fell on grass on xmas eve when the temp reached 29 but wasnt really recognized considering only 673 people and a few farmers lived there. And yes, christmas varies alot, 2 yrs ago i remember it was 78 and it was already 9:45 pm, and another year it was 58 at 4:56 pm with a wind chill of 49 and that night it dropped to 41! but i garrantee new years is always f***ing cold at night, on a regular new years it'll be midnight and itll be between 54-47 and it will be cold as hell. One new years i remember it was 34 at midnight and a wind chill of 25! there was also a passing ice shower which left our car covered in a thin layer of ice and had to wait til the next day for it to melt with a high of 57.
