January-April: The weather during the early months of the year is just perfect and attracts a lot of tourists, especially college students in the months of March and April. With very little rain and sunny temperatures, bring a light sweater or two since temperatures tend to drop as the summer hasn’t set in yet.
May-September: Welcome to Fort Lauderdale’s summer. The beaches and boardwalks, a heaven for travelers, come out alive during these months. If you’re looking to travel on a budget, seize the opportunity and exploit the summer rates. Just remember to pack shorts, swimwear and sunscreen! Beware of the stormy weather though; official storm season is between June and November.
October-December: As far as you can, try and avoid October and November as the retreating monsoons are in full force then, although there are very many events and activities like the Film Festival and the Boat Festival. The weather oscillates between searing hot and cool temperatures so pack accordingly.
