What's The Weather like in Florida?

Where Is Florida?

The most southeastern state in the United States, Florida is essentially a huge peninsula that juts out into the ocean. It's bordered on three sides by water, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the west and the Straits of Florida to the south.

To its north, the state is bordered by Georgia and Alabama. The spectacular year-round weather in this corner of the United States attracts sunbathers from all over the world.

Florida is home to many world-famous destinations, places that have attracted sun-seekers for decades including MiamiTampaDisney World, and the Florida Keys.

What's The Climate Like In Florida?

Florida's climate can be summarised as having long and hot summers, brief and warm winters and short shoulder seasons.

As such a huge peninsula, Florida boasts the longest coastline of all 48 lower states. It is subject to a subtropical climate in its northern parts, while a tropical climate characterizes the southern regions of the state.

This (sub) tropical climate makes Florida a relatively stable year-round beach destination -temperatures remain very warm throughout the year, even in winter, and the seawater is comfortable all the time. 

Rain In Florida

Rainfall varies throughout the year, with late spring through early autumn being by far the wettest time of the year. This is also when high humidity may be a problem to some people.

The climate in the state is milder than in other (sub) tropical destinations, due to the fact that all parts of it are located relatively close to the sea, which influences the climate and limits extreme weather conditions.
