I live just south of Sarasota on the west coast, and it feels much more comfortable here in the summer than in Orlando where I also lived for 10 years. The difference is the "Gulf breeze".

Completely Subjective Yes? I absolutely hate Central Florida winters. Who wants a Bipolar forecast seriously? Not only that the cold snaps kills much of our crops and tourism so no, it is not amazing in the eyes of everyone.

I do agree about the Hot and Humid. Its the same in South Florida as Orlando, Orlando just feels more wet as South Florida feels like the sun is right next to you making an activity like walking intense.

You do realize the best way to take a Temperature in Orlando or Central Florida is through your own thermometer? They take the averages of ALL cities included in the Metro count and thats how we get our 'Fore casted" high temperatures/ rain chances/ and lows. The temperatures in Orlando usually are higher than given on any news station or website. Just something I observed over the years here.

I've noticed that the hottest summer days in Jacksonville are when the wind comes out of the west or northwest. It keeps the seabreeze from coming inland and pushes that hot Georgia air into Jacksonville.
