Miami Weather April Averages, USA
What's the Weather Like in Miami in April
April can perhaps be considered as the start of the summer season in Florida, as the weather starts to pick up again after a slight slump in the winter.
At the very least, this month signals the end of the cooler weather as we move towards a higher percentage of sunshine during the daytime. There are an average of 9 hours a day of sunshine during this month, which means more time for heat to build up.
You may want to check a weather forecast before going out, as the rainfall starts to increase this month as well. There are still only going to be only an average of 7 wet days, but during that time, around 81mm will fall. This means the rain may be sudden and heavy.
Interestingly enough, it can be on average a couple of degrees warmer just a little way up the coast, in Fort Lauderdale. There are plenty of beaches in between the two cities if you would like to try your luck for a warmer day.
From this month onwards, temperatures start to soar but beware the humidity that comes with them. Many visitors, especially those that come from cooler countries, find that it is more comfortable to visit Miami outside of the peak summer times in order to avoid the humidity which can make for a very sticky visit. Next month the rainfall starts to increase dramatically, which can lead to storms and even extreme weather putting an occasional dampener on your plans.
