Temperature-wise, they can be. It's the humidity in FL that's so brutal. Not only that, but the length of extreme heat and humidity doesn't last nearly as long either.

In the 90's that's it, that is beautiful! The way you people are talking I thought it was around 120 in the summer time. I would take that anytime compared to Old, Ugly, Cold, Dark, Nyc in the winter. I been to Florida many times it is beautiful all year long.

My son also hated it, he hated layers. It's so much easier to just put on a pair of light pants and a shirt be off.

Well, to each its own I guess (shrug). I think 40 is cold. The rain and the wind makes it even colder and more unpleasant. We don't have that many sunny clear days in New York, let's be honest.

Most people once they become 'adults' look more presentable dressed up a bit even if it is jeans, a polo and leather shoes or sneakers. This at one time was considered dress down in big cities up north<g> Why this is not more the norm in FL away from the beach or pool is beyond my comprehension as most buildings folks spend all their time in have the ice cold A/C cranking nonstop.

The only time I wear shorts is either working out or at the beach just like when I lived up north.. I guess I am not into the 24/7 trashy tees, baggy shorts and flip flops many find so endeering to a 'laid back' life in FL.. Folks need to realize it is all plays a part leading to our decaying culture down here, lack of professionalism, of declining values and poor work ethic .

So I'd vote for NY winters over summer in FL even though I don't like NYC weather much except it is not consistently hot and humid making it more tolerable... Our 6-8 months of relentless heat and humidity is a total waste except for a dip in the ocean which is incredibly refreshing even when the water temp is 87..

Im not from New York, but Im from the next best place. Connecticut

Having experience both up north winters, and Florida summers, I pick Florida summers through and through, hands down, no questions asked

My childhood was split evenly between Orlando and Connecticut. I can say I prefer Florida summers over New York/New England winters. I will tolerate 90+ degrees from May to October with afternoon thunderstorms if I do not have to shovel snow or just be freezing cold in general. That what my car's AC is for. During the summer I keep a light jacket in the car because the AC is THAT cold in my car

But man it feels good getting into that after being in the summer heat for a good few minutes. The heat ad the humidity dont bother me. Call me sick and twisted but I like it. During summer months people seem happier and more easy going because the days are long, and it doesnt get dark at 5 or 6 like it has been lately

Long live summer time!

Florida summers all the way. Which is why I live here. If I wanted NY winters, I would move to NY.

I have previously lived in NYC and moved to Florida 20 years ago. I have moved all over Florida to find the right spot for me because like NY the weather can be drastically different in other parts of the state.

The inland portions of the state will usually be a little warmer than both coasts. During the summer the difference between north and south Florida will not be as distinct as the difference in winter.

To give an example the average July temp in Miami is high of 91 and a low of 77 and Jacksonville is high of 90 and a low of 74 but during January the average high for Miami is 76 and the average low is 60 while Jax will have an average high of 64 and an average low of 45.

I left NY because I hate the cold just as some in Florida hate the warmth. It does still get cold in Florida but not for as long. This winter we had a week or 2 with lows in the 20's and 30's in central Florida.

I think Florida has much better weather no matter what part of the state but it is all just a personal preference.

Excellent post, sir.

Your anlaysis of the weather in Florida highlights a number of important issues. First, personal preference is the key. Second, - and this is so important to those contemplating North Florida vs. South Florida as an escape from Northern winters - the summers throughout Florida are hot and humid but the Southern part of the state has milder winters than does North Florida. So many end up in North Florida then realize that the winters there can be a little too cold for them while at the same time the summers are just as hot as in South Florida. You also appropriately point out that inland can be hotter than on either coast.

All good info for those whose relocation to Florida hinges predominantly on weather, and who are considering which portion of the state is best for them.
