Would yall say if moving from Atlanta to Florida to get milder or even warmer winters would it be better to look further south than Jax beach? Would Cocoa Beach be about where the colder winter weather cuts off and starts to stay pretty mild from there south? I really like Jacksonville beach area, but am trying to get away from chilly winters. I don't mind 50s/60s but not much colder than that.

I have been here 30 years and we have had snow in 1989 on Christmas..............Christmas Day in 2008 was eighty degrees.........this year it has been a bit chillier than usual but for the most part our winters are pretty mild.


If you Google average highs and lows for Jacksonville Florida it reflects pretty mild temperatures for January and February.

Tomorrow, around 7AM, we are looking at 28 degrees in Jax. Thursday and Friday mornings, 32 and 35.

So, guess we don’t get that cold here.��

I try not to complain as I have friends and family in New England who were enjoying single digits around the holidays....................but I have had enough of this already.


I am so ready for 50's and 60's

30 degrees at the wee hours of the morning with highs in the 50s and 60s isn't cold!

Yea, right!😒
Tomorrow’s high 49 and Thursday 51. For Seniors, that’s cold!

When people are walking around, bundled up, and wearing snow boots, like they are in New England, 49 and 51 is cold.

Thanks JBtwinz, I have looked at the google averages, definitely is warmer than here in Atlanta. My aunt and uncle live in Marsh Landing area, it’s nice there! Although I would probably look around PVB the apartments by the end of JTB or try and find a decent place in Neptune or Jax beach. Are you in the beaches area?

Cold weather has been nothing compared to what they experienced in Northeast.

Crazy, I never thought about that. I always found it weird how =
Rome has milder winters than Atlanta, despite being much further north. The Alps must help them a lot.

We will be there in a few days and will see for ourselves.
I'm just hoping the furnace is working.
