I understand what you're getting here but there is a big difference in Florida between North FL and SoFlo. You could be freezing in Gainesville one day and be on the beach in Miami the same day. Having lived in Alaska it's even more extreme. You do realize Alaska is about the same size as the lower 48? So the southern tip of AK would be around TX or FL and the Northern tip in Maine. Southern AK has summer which actually gets pretty warm, Northern AK above the artic circle summer consist of 40's.

It's big, but not THAT big. The Aleutians make it look bigger.

It's about right. If you drew a line across the Northern tip of Alaska it would cut through Maine and drew a line through the southern tip it would cross into Texas and FL as well. It would have been more accurate for me to say AK is nearly as long north to south as the lower 48. The point was to illustrate there are variances in temperature in AK just as there are in FL.

For one,north Florida is listed as a sub-tropical climate and south is listed as tropical...though I tend to agree,in my experience anything south of NC is hot as all getout;

Although I agree with you, the OP asked specifically about the summer.

If you mean hot & humid, you're right, but inland areas can feel much more oppressive than cities on the coast.

It's all hot in summer. Difference is in fall-spring. I never felt a need to escape the summer heat when I lived in Florida. I embraced it and went swimming whenever I could. I DID have a desire to escape the fall, winter and spring heat, though! 80 degrees in Miami now in December, idk how y'all can stand that! Rather have -10!

When you're inland in the summer though, it will feel worse. But I don't think the seabreezes go that far inland either. North central Florida, far from the sea, can get pretty damn hot and humid in summer and feel more so. Also, you gotta consider bugs. 90 degrees by the coast with less bugs than 90 degrees further in land filled with all kinds of bugs, the bugs will make it feel worse as well as the heat.

If it's freezing in Gainesville, it's probably in the 50s in Miami. The difference is not THAT dramatic! I love cold weather but you won't find me in the water if it's not over 80 degrees. Miami water is too cold for me to swim from October until April. I would only get in and actually want to stay in there from May to September. Only northerners go swimming there in winter time

You are correct. If this was a reading comprehension question I would have failed.

There are times when the cold fronts stall out north of Miami and the rest of the state is considerably colder. Although I will agree, generally speaking the low temps vary by about 20 degrees between north and south Florida.
