There is hardly any difference. You may have SLIGHTLY more moderated temperatures in St. Pete than in Tampa but most people can't tell.

My co-worker lives in Land of Lakes and we both work next to the water. She says it is always 5 degrees colder in the mornings up there. Not a big difference if you ask me.

Winter? You mean that slightly cooler than summer time of year?

South ST Pete is the warmest in the Tampa area.

Yes, but how does Dunedin and Clearwater compare to St. Pete and Tampa? I know there's more to how warm or cool it feels, than temperature.

Breeze and humidity obviously can change within miles of a coast.

At one point last night Dunedin was 8 degrees cooler and if it was windier then that could be a big difference for a nit-picker like myself.

I used to live in south Tampa. I now live in Treasure Island. Treasure island is much more comfortable in the summer, due to the constant gulf breeze. Winter can feel a bit cooler during the day. We have slightly lower temps than inland and still have the breeze. Night time at the beach, in winter, can feel noticeably warmer. When Tampa gets freezing temps, we usually stay above freezing.

It makes sense that temps would be more moderated on the gulf coast. Which surprises me that Dunedin has cooler winter temps (according to the weather channel), but I guess that can be explained by it getting a different mix of gulf steams although its only 15 miles further up from St. Pete and Treasure Island.

You have the bay and gulf in the south ST Pete area to keep it warmer on the coldest nites. I lived on the gulf in west Pasco and it is much colder up here during the winter compared to south ST Pete. When you have water that is warmer than the air temp on the coldest nites on both sides of ya it does make a diff.

I don't think you would lump Treasure Island, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach or Gulfport in that description.
