Default Miami gets COLD EVERY winter

Florida FALSELY advertises their place as some sort of tropical paradise. Well I am here to tell you THAT IS A LIE.

MIAMI WILL GET AT LEAST 40 EVERY WINTER. AND SINCE 2003 IT HAS BEEN 36 AND 37 A LOT.

Yeah, all these people that complain about how it is always hot here seem to vanish when it gets cold. I can testify that EVERY YEAR there are cold spells with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s. More common are the 60s and 40s combo though. While that might not seem that cold, it is when you compare our average temperatures are much above that.

It is also interesting to point out that even Havana, Cuba; Cancun, Mexico and other true blue tropical areas get cold during these times as well.

NO IT IT IS NOT EVEN SUBTROPCIAL - MOST OF IT MOST OF FLORIDA IS TEMPETAE ZONE LIKE THE REST OF THE UNITED STATES


ONLY MIAMI IS


You just can accept it........ TRANSITIONAL is the correct word.


SUB tropical is NOT tropical. you just like how it has that in its name


MIAMI IS VERY FAR FROM TROPICAL.

FACE IT, YOU ARE NOT IN THE TROPICS. YOUR PLACE IS NOTHIGN SPECIAL

NOW, THE DOMINCAN REPUBLIC IS GREAT

This Miami weather should NOT surprise ANYONE. Miami is nothing more than a TRANSITIONAL ZONE between the tropical zone and temperate zones.


Miami has STRONG FEATURES of the United States' temperate zone with LIMITED tropical vegetation. They CAN'T grow breadfruit unprotected.

BREADFRUIT IS ALLLLLLL OVER THE CARIBBEAN

I always fantasize and think, "what if" there was a major mountain range like the Rockies just across the FL state line along the north rim of the Gulf. They would probably block our cold fronts and we would have a much warmed winter climate, more like Central America or Jamaica during the winter. Personally I would love it, but if those mountains were high enough to block the cold, they would also block the moisture going north and everything up to Canada would be a cold, windswept desert probably!!
