South Florida closes the year with lots of sunshine!
Although historically one of the 'coolest' months of the year, Fort Lauderdale weather in December is still very pleasant. An occasional cold front can bring some very cool air down from the north but that rarely lasts more than a couple of days.
December 2015 was an exception and particularly cold and frankly pretty miserable, as was the rest of the season. The occasional little cold spells which we expect lasted way more than a few days. In all our years of coming down here, we have never experienced such a lousy winter and nothing like the averages we outline below.
