Those who complain about the heat and still live here, year after year, probably are not playing with a full deck either.
Once in a while we have High temps around 81 in the summer when we have a cloudy and very rainy day. It's not bad now, cloudy and very light rain with a temp of 74.

It does cool off a little in the winter, right? I mean I'm not expecting snow or even a real winter.

Anyway, didn't move here for the weather.

Yes, it cools off & NO...you would likely not consider it a "real" winter if you are coming from a place that snows.

Keep in mind though...once you acclimate to the sustained hot weather you'll find that a drop to 40/50 feels pretty cold to you. But you certainly aren't going to be wearing 3-4 layers of clothing or shoveling snow. Occasional ice but more likely to be 60ish, if not warmer.

The winter of Jan thru March of 2010 was the first real winter we have had since 1984. 3 solid months with highs in the 40's- 50's and lows in the 20's to 40's with maybe 5 days of 70's thrown in. Most winters we don't get any rain and it's warm.

You must live up near Tallahassee. I live in Orlando and we didn't get anywhere near the cold that you are talking about from Jan-March 2010. We had a colder than normal month in Jan with our coldest low temp of 28 degrees, which lasted two hours between 5am-7am. Our average high is low 70's daytime in Jan. and we were 65 degrees avg high in Jan 2010. So while there were days where our highs were in the 50's we had just as many days that made it into the 70's. It is hilarious how stories get blown out of proportion through time. A couple years from now we will be telling the newbies that residents of Lake County were downhill skiing.

Actually it was one of our coldest winters in 2010, but if you look at the official temps from NOAA (for St. Pete) we had a lot more days in the 70's, than just 5. We actually had 27 days in the 70's and 1 day at 80. If you add in the days that were in the 60's that is a total of 64 days of temps. in the 60's and 70's from Jan. thru March. To us natives the other days were still cold, but still pretty nice temps for the majority of the time. These are the official lows and highs for St. Pete in Jan., Feb., and March of 2010
