Someone was telling me they had a few flakes of snow up in JAX...nothing like that happening here near Orlando.

Use google and look up average temperature for both areas, that should tell you...

I remember when we drove here to florida, you could feel the temp getting higher each time you got out of the car while we were driving down to Orlando.

I don't know about the seasonal color......it's green here most of the year. We do have some decidious native trees - live oaks and maples, so there can be a bit of a color change and some leaf drop, but I would say it's negligible.

The air probably moves a bit better here than in Orlando because of the coast, so it might feel cooler even if it's not really cooler.

It's hot and humid.....I don't there's any getting around that anywhere in Florida.

The difference here is mainly the breeze, and if your friends are living out at/near the beach, they'll feel a real change from Orlando - it's a different kind of hot in Orlando.

I think when you compare the temps of the two cities (on weather.com or wherever), you'll find Orlando to be just a few degrees warmer overall, but hot is hot and Jax gets hot for sure.

I moved to Live Oak from the Tampa Bay area 2 yrs ago. Yes, there is a temp difference, and we had a few (very) light snow flurries this past winter. As far as fall colors...not really. We have a few maple trees around and that adds a splash of color here and there, but nothing even close to new england.
