A wet day is one with at least 0.04 inches of liquid or liquid-equivalent precipitation. The chance of wet days in Miami Springs varies significantly throughout the year.

The wetter season lasts 142 days, from May 23 to October 12, with a greater than 39% chance of a given day being a wet day. The chance of a wet day peaks at 64% on August 24.

The drier season lasts 223 days, from October 12 to May 23. The smallest chance of a wet day is 14% on January 26.

Among wet days, we distinguish between those that experience rain alone, snow alone, or a mixture of the two. Based on this categorization, the most common form of precipitation throughout the year is rain alone, with a peak probability of 64% on August 24.

Daily Chance of Precipitation

The percentage of days in which various types of precipitation are observed, excluding trace quantities: rain alone, snow alone, and mixed (both rain and snow fell in the same day).

Rainfall

To show variation within the months and not just the monthly totals, we show the rainfall accumulated over a sliding 31-day period centered around each day in the year. Miami Springs experiences very significant seasonal variation in monthly rainfall.

Rain falls throughout the year in Miami Springs. The most rain falls during the 31 days centered around June 18, with an average total accumulation of 6.4 inches.

The least rain falls around December 23, with and average total accumulation of 1.3 inches.

Average Monthly Rainfall

The average rainfall (solid line) accumulated over the course of a sliding 31-day period centered on the day in question, with 25th to 75th and 10th to 90th percentile bands. The thin dotted line is the corresponding average liquid-equivalent snowfall.

Humidity

We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.

Miami Springs experiences very significant seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.

The muggier period of the year lasts for 233 days, from April 14 to December 3, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 46% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is July 30, with muggy conditions 100% of the time.

The least muggy day of the year is January 25, with muggy conditions 28% of the time.

Data Sources

This report illustrates the typical weather in Miami Springs, based on a statistical analysis of historical hourly weather reports and model reconstructions from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2016.

Temperature and Dew Point

There are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Miami Springs.

For each station, the records are are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Miami Springs according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.

The estimated value at Miami Springs is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Miami Springs and a given station.

The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Miami International Airport (76%, 4.4 kilometers, southwest) and Opa-locka Executive Airport (24%, 9 kilometers, north).

Other Data

All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Tables of the Sun, Moon and Planets , by Jean Meeus.

All other weather data, including cloud cover, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and solar flux, come from NASA's MERRA-2 Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.

Land Use data comes from the Global Land Cover SHARE database , published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
