Naples Weather Forecast and Conditions Florida (34104) It is now 87 degrees with the heat index of 95 degrees. There is a big black cloud outside so it looks like a tstorm is on its way. We are just recently starting to get our daily tstorms, but they have been mainly in the early afternoon, not the usual later in the day. That probably will keep the temps down a bit.

10 Day Weather Forecast for Naples, FL (34104) - weather.com Again, remember it's still early June and not even summer yet. This forecast also does not give the heat indexes, which is pretty significant here.

He didn't mention heat index in his post. 87 degrees does not equal 100 degrees.

from the coast to inland area. Every single day? Probably not, but it is at least high 80s through mid 90s from July through September along the coast. I suppose that would make the average 92 degrees? Again, that isn't factoring in the heat index with all the humidity. THAT is how it gets so brutal.

I can't believe I actually had to explain that.
Well, since variations in Florida's climate have to do with it's varying latitudes and not so much with East-West distance (which time zones basically are), multiple time zones are kind of irrelvent.

Is Jacksonville REALLY that much different than Pensacola?.

Pensacola: Climate in Pensacola, Florida

Jacksonville: Climate in Jacksonville, Florida

Nope.

He didn't mention heat index in his post. He said 100 degrees, regular temperature. You've lost the argument.

and the actual temp isn't out of the 80s. So what would the heat index be when the actual temps are in the low to mid 90s? It would be pushing or over 100 degrees. We don't have dry heat here.

What the other poster meant, I don't know. You will have to ask him.

The argument was over his statement, not over the heat index and your opinions.

FACT of the matter is that when making the comparison here it always seems to be a comparison between the Northeast/Midwest OR Florida..... Heck, I would probably take Florida weather over Buffalo or Duluth.

All I'm doing is pointing out that there seems to be a LOT of ignorance on varying climates OUTSIDE of Florida as well in this forum. Sorry if that doesn't "concern" you.
The question was "Do you like Floridas climate?"

Not, "Do you like Floridas climate compared to N, NE, SW, etc?"

Besides that, how would comparing Atlanta,GA to Worcester,MA have anything to do with whether someone likes Floridas climate?

I have no idea what his point is. If he's trying to recruit people to move to the South he's not doing a good job.
