A Warm February In Miami
February continues the dry and warm winter which Miami has recently been enjoying, which means delightful temperatures along with plenty of sunshine. So far in February, the average high has been 78° Fahrenheit, and the average low has been 62° Fahrenheit. The days in Miami have warmed slightly during February, and by the end of the month, the temperature should have climbed around 2° F. The relative humidity in Miami during February usually peaks at 83% in the morning and then drops to 57% by early afternoon, which is a bit less than in the summer, meaning more enjoyable weather and less uncomfortable humidity.
Although this weather is undeniably pleasant, it is more than slightly disconcerting. Annual weather reports show a trend of gradually increasing temperatures over the years in Miami and in the rest of the world, resulting in record-high temperatures for the month of February and indicating the indisputable effects of climate change on Miami, as well as countless cities around the world. If temperatures continue to increase at their current rate, it is likely that the people of Miami will not have much of a winter to enjoy in the coming years, and neither will the rest of the world. Luckily, there are many conservation efforts in place and awareness of global climate change is at a rise, so there may still be hope that Miami will not suffer from eternal summer.
