Being Miami is 2 degrees above the Tropic of Cancer and nutation causes fluctuation in the earths tilt which can cause tropic zones to shift north and south Miami is at times within the Tropic Zone but the weather is very near tropical the majority of the time anyway.

Lines on a globe are just a that, lines. They do not determine weather patterns the jet stream has alot to do with weather patterns and that also shifts.

Miami is nice year-round. Summer isn't too hot, winter doesn't get cold. The average daily high in June and July is only 89 ... which is not bad. What I'm reading says that Miami has NEVER recorded a temperature over 100 degrees. I've been down several times in July, for weeks, and it was great every time.

New York seems like it would move toward the seasonal extremes. While it would be nice to have more seasonal variation, I'm not real crazy about long stretches of cold weather.

Yes, I am. Miami has never recorded a temperature above 98. In the southeast U.S., summertimes are much cooler near the ocean.

The climate I am used to is also humid, and has recorded temperatures of 107 in June, July, and August, and temperatures of 101 in September and October, as well as having higher average daily highs for May, June, July, August, and September, than Miami.

Believe it or not, not everyone sees the world through the lens of New Jersey.

That's a very small area that smells (it doesn't even smell all the time) so it doesn't represent the whole state. I wonder where that sulphur smell comes from though.

I think it has something to do with the refinery process?

All I know is that it is VERY strong along the Turnpike near Newark Airport.

While that IS true, I don't doubt you, BUT it's the same vice versa. The same people in FL who HATE the heat and humidity are gonna be the FIRST people to fold when they go a little further up north and experience the "beauty" of freezing cold weather. I've seen it 1st hand with family members, and it happened to ME personally. And when I say up north, I'm just speaking about when they go to GA and NC, imagine when they go to NYC.

Actually I haven't lived in Florida but I have been there plenty of times in the middle of the Summer, I know what the heat is like down there, and I've felt heat indexes of 120+ in the Mid-Atlantic as well (NYC, LI, Philly, PA, MD, DC, etc.) so there's no real difference to ME except that the heat lasts longer. FL heat is nothing I haven't felt before.

Lol in the poll you made I was the only one who voted for 95 degrees.

I believe the weather in South Florida is good for the elderly people,before South Beach was turned into a hip-hop young wannabes type area it was the Octagenerian League where you drive by the now Art Deco area and see the retirees sitting out front of their hotels getting some sunshine. The heat is probably good for arthritis and other ailments.
