Weather Patterns in Florida

Florida has a subtropical climate, and as the peninsula of the state extends beyond any adjacent landmass, local weather patterns are widely variant compared to nearby states. It is for this reason an adequate knowledge of information relevant to the topic is a necessity before any travel is planned.

Hurricanes and tropical storms

The bulk of hurricanes that develop in the sub-tropical waters around the coast of Florida are concentrated between the months of August and October. They are least likely to occur in January and March. The El Nino low pressure system develops approximately once every five years and can have severely adverse effects on the climate in surrounding regions.

Average temperature in the state

As the state is relatively near the equator, it is usually warm all year long, with the lowest average temperatures in the early 60's throughout the winter months. Average temperatures in the summer produce sweltering heat, and conditions during this season are dry for the most part. However, relief from the heat is often provided via evening and precipitation and thunderstorm activity.

Precipitation

As the weather patterns allow for a warmer climate, snowfall is a rarity in the state. When it does occur, it is usually only a few inches. Rainfall occurs year-round, but is concentrated mainly in the summer months.

Determining the best time to visit Florida depends completely on your agenda. With the right information on weather patterns, you are able to have a better idea of what the climate is like in various months throughout the year.
