Not true in my case and i live on the gulf or sawgrass i should i say. I get nothing but 24/7 sunshine May thru Oct with very little rain since we are stuck in a reverse west west windflow most all of every summer with wha very little wind i get blowing off of 90 degree gulf water temps giving me lows of 82 and highs of 88 to 96 85% of the summer. 12 to 20 miles to my east showers built up and move away from me toward the east coast so i miss out on all the rain for weeks at a time during the summer. No place is worse than where i live.

Not sure I understand,so you're saying it's not oppressive but then say nowhere is worse...

When the axis of high pressure is south of the Tampa area then we get a west wind 24/7 blowing off the gulf. That makes it feel like a steam bath from hell where i live and no clouds or rain most of the summer for my house. We have not had a normal southeast windflow since the mid 80's like we used to have in the summer where showers built up around Brandon east of Tampa and move toward the west coast.

So let me put it this way, i hate our weather during the summer since i get almost no clouds or rain while people to my east around 12 to 20 miles get plenty of rain.

The west coast of Florida is generally hotter than the east coast. Also, the ocean has almost no waves so it feels like an eternal lake. The east coast has big waves and it is nice to hear the waves crashing even if you live 2 or 3 blocks away form the Beach.

The coldest part of Florida is the area from Ocala to the GA/FL state line. Generally anywhere north of I-10 gets scary cold in winter.

Since I'm used to chilly PA and WA weather,nothing in in FL could be 'scary' cold to me; I had been doing some research and so far it looks as if in general the lowest temps overall look to be around the Pensacola area...

We're going to sink below 68 degrees in St Pete Saturday, and the low is going to be mid 50's! So don't move here. We'll have to dig out the cold weather clothes. Thankfully there's a few days to prepare for this dangerous winter weather, so remember to keep your pets inside, especially if you have pet fish, and some small pet jackets and mittens would be good Christmas gifts. Except maybe for the fish. I'm not sure how that works.

There's no ocean on the west coast of Florida? Then don't even bother coming here. Might as well stay in the Southwest dessert then. Geez, every time you think you have things figured out.....

Default "Cold" is Relative

We recently purchased property in Palm Coast, and are having a house built there. The fact that the low temps in January and February average in the 40s is no problem for us..... we're moving from Maine. Cold is a relative thing..... I'll take 40 over single-digits or below any day .

We picked Palm Coast because we liked the look of the town, the friendliness of the residents, and the winters that are cooler than further south. We have relatives who live on Summerland Key. We wouldn't want to put up with the high nighttime temperatures there. We figure that in Palm Coast we will be able to open the windows on cool evenings to bring down the temperature in the house and not have to use the air conditioning for a good part of the year. We're also looking forward to being able to being able to go out for a morning walk when it's cool enough for a sweater and/or a light jacket..... but not so cold we need to wear our down parkas and cover our faces to protect them from the frigid wind. There's cold and then there's cold

For now we plan to escape the summers and spend them here on the coast of Maine, but we're very much looking forward to spending the colder months in Palm Coast.

We have a Maine summer rid on our street, they go to Maine for several months during the summer and stay in their cabin. They never stay 6 month as it would threaten their homestead status.

Personally I like the hot weather and the smaller waves doesn't bother me either.
