However, saying cold in the morning to a Californian is all relative. It's usually cold in the morning in most of the state all year long when compared to Tampa.

Our morning lows in Miami have been quite warm this year. It's been in the low 80s each day and around 70 overnight. I'm sure not complaining. That's about 5-7 degrees above normal for both the high and the low temperatures for January.
I hate you...I miss MIami so much.
I took this job in Philadelphia 3 years ago and everybody was asking me why I wanted to move from North MIami Beach to Philadelphia.
I was like "Meh, I went to college in Atlanta. The winter should not be that bad..." I was so wrong!
Let me tell you: As I went out today from my apartment, it was 28 F degree. I put the heater in my apt at 80, and IT IS STILL COLD!
Anytime people here asked me where I am from and I said Miami, I tried not to listen to their responds, especially when it revolved around "You move from Miami to Philadelphia?" as though it was the stupidest idea ever. I always felt like crying.
And people here say I am crazy when during summer, I could sleep like a baby with no AC when it is 85 degree outside.

Maybe I watch too much TV?
Visiting a place and seeing for yourself I find to be a more accurate way to assess. It also helps prevent from embarrassing yourself when making such broad analogies.

I agree, though that weather isn't limited to just South Florida. The Central Florida area where I live has much the same going on. The St Petersburg/Clearwater area and Sarasota are similarly mild with prevailing Gulf breezes and plenty of sun. The state's interior (Orlando and much of Tampa for instance) tend to feel less mild without the prevailing ocean breezes.
