Odd September rainfall peak, there. Is that from tropical storms?

Add 2 degrees Celsius in winter and you get my perfect climate. There's everything I love : a lengthy, hot and humid season with occasional strong rainfall, and a slightly cooler, dry one, both with abundant sunshine.
Awesome !

A++ fantastic.. the only downside to this climate is that it's quite vulnerable to hurricanes.

Awesome !

Having been to Key West many times, I would have to agree with you 100%– Key West is one of the few tropical climates that I would give an A+. Key West is easily one of my favorite places on earth!

However, two things I’ve noticed about the Florida Keys compared to other tropical islands/areas when considering the climate: 1) Although the trade winds are common on many tropical islands between 12 and 27 latitude …because the Florida Keys are a narrow a string of coral islands and the topography is very low…there is an wonderfully strong and steady breeze all year – and especially in the dry season (Dec – April). Even on a 90 F day the air feels balmy and refreshing. 2) The Florida Keys seem very dry for an Aw (Tropical Savannah) climate. While the official station might record 39 inches of rainfall annually, much of this comes in quick downpours (especially in the wet season). Yet, in terms of sensable weather Key West “feels” dry often. The only other time I experience this in tropical latitudes is in Aruba off the South American coast.

The Florida Keys and Key West is truly a unique place. Just offshore of the Florida Keys along the edge of the Florida Straits is the Florida Reef . The Florida Reef is the third largest barrier reef system in the world. I’ve been to Key West many times, and it’s likely the most fun and funky town in the world. For all intents and purpose – America ends in Key West (Key West is the southernmost city on the US mainland(24.2 north). The Overseas Highways is the most unique roadway in America – 42 bridges that span 166 miles though mangroves, coral rock, and tropical savannah scrub. As in any far-flung province, Key West has that vibe of nonconformity that makes it fun and funky. This is what attached prates, rumrunners, and castaways 250 years ago.

Here are some pics for all you Key West lovers…

C. Summers are incredibly oppressive with those 80 F lows. Winters are to die for though.

The 3400 sunshine hours is incredible. Even Willemstad doesn't get nearly as much and it's a fair bit dryer than Key West.
