For the past 7 months of truly spectacular weather! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and nesting, wow, we are sooo lucky to live here!

Now that it's gonna start getting brutally hot, let us not forget the perfect temps we've had for a LONG long time!

Can't wait until October again!

I would have liked it to be a tad cooler like a regular FL winter but overall yes it's been pretty damned near perfect since October.

Lived here all my life and can't remember such a long stretch of fantastic weather. Sure, we have the next 4-5 months of heat and humidity, but I'll take that over 6-7 months of cold and dreary any day.

It was a horrible winter, too warm. Unfortunately it's all downhill from here until Halloween.

You got that right. We should start to see 90 or more by May 12th as that is the date when we seem to get our first 90 in Tampa. I remember the first 7 days of May 1995 when we had highs from 95 to 97. Expect a dry May as are most every May.

Once the gulf temp gets above 83 and we get stuck in a reverse west wind flow we all see what true hell is when we have lows around 82 and highs around 90 to 94 for weeks at a time and very little rain around the coast.

So, we are moving from CT to FL in the Tampa area. Here we are stuck in the house from about Nov-April (we have a few good days in-between) to get out to Bike, Run, spend time outdoors. The rest of the time we usually have Snow/Ice/Cold Temps. We can only use our Pools from June-Aug. (if we're lucky). What can I expect down there? I hear it's hot from now til Oct.? do people actually stay indoors? Or do you need to go out early in the morning to get in your Run/Biking etc.? What about the Pools and Beaches?

We moved down from N.H. and stayed ten years. The first couple years wernt to bad but as time went on the heat seemed to bother me more. I actually believe that as far as outdoor activities go i get to do a lot more in N.H.. I find it much easier to prepare for and enjoy the cold weather than to live in A/C for months at a time. At least i'm outdoors.

October through April here is rarely hotter than 85 and rarely colder than 50 (daytime temps). You could have an 80-degree day in March, you could also have a 50-degree day. It averages out to perfection for 7 months. And the humidity is usually very low.

The summer (May - Sept) is nasty hot/humid (much worse than Conn.) and you basically have to do your outdoor activities before the sun has been up too long, before 9 a.m. Otherwise you roast.

I remember when I lived in Boston there were very very few "perfection" days, usually they were in September. Spring was too rainy. Sept. was the only time you could open your windows and not roast or freeze. Outdoor stuff w/out any gear was also limited to that time. Otherwise you had to layer up for cold or wear rain gear.

The scenery up north is more beautiful, but you don't get beautiful weather in order to enjoy it. Or at least, not for any long stretch of time.
