Florida Weather

Florida's weather is one of the state's most valuable (if not the most valuable) natural resource. Its official nickname of the 'Sunshine State,' is most appropriate, as Florida enjoys (on average) 300 days of full sunshine each year.

Florida can be very hot and humid in summer (central and south) with a good chance for a brief afternoon thunderstorm (they don't last long). Daily highs then average in the mid-80s, with lows in the 70s.

During the hurricane season (June through the end of November), the state is occasionally subject to an approaching storm, however, plenty of advance warnings are given to both residents and travelers alike.

In the winter months (central and north) conditions are generally mild, but can quickly become damp and somewhat chilly as cold fronts slide across the state from the northwest.

Winter weather from West Palm Beach south through the Florida Keys is considered perfect year-round.
