Florida's summers aren't as difficult as floridas Fall. Fall is equally hot as summer but you don't get the afternoon showers. Nights in the 60s are rare outside of winter.

Whoever says gulf breezes are nice is delusional. That gulf becomes a sauna in summertime. It makes the air more hot and difficult to breath in.

Guess I'm "delusional" then, because they feel good to me!

Nah, it's true. Even the water is FAR from refreshing during the summer.
I was at Medeira Beach last year for July 4th, and the water was as hot as the air. There was no "cooling" effect whatsoever.

Clearly they haven't experienced the effect of going from the "heat island" feel of the state's interior to a noticeably cooler/breezier feel once you cross a causeway to a Gulf peninsula like St Pete/Clearwater.

Today's heat index was 103 in Naples. Who would want to go in 85 degrees water. The high (without heat index) was 90-ish. So the water is as hot as the air. Add the stifling humidity and I wouldn't even attempt the beach. I bet that sand is on fire by now

Keep in mind there are plenty of people on this forum that keep their Air conditioners set at 80 and think it is comfortable.


Florida has some very hot and humid summers. Not only that but summer weather lately can stretch all the way into December some years. Used to be that October, right around Halloween, was like a switch. More recent years (say the last 8 or so) it feels like Summer is creeping all the way through November and even into December some years.

Overall all though July, August, September and into October are terrible months to be here. June is hot but doesn't feel quite as bad because you just finished the spring.

Fall? What fall. We don't have a fall season anymore. At least not for the last 7 or 8 years that I remember.

Winter is usually very nice. December, January, February and March are great months almost any year. April and even May can be nice like it was for the first 2 weeks of this year.


Just like up North, you pretty much deal with 4 -5 months of crap weather. You just have to pick cold / snow vs hot and humid.
