Florida climate and weather: Sunbathing and swimming all year round – but still four seasons

Florida climate and weather – that means shorts and sandals all year round! Although the Orlando theme parks may object…

Florida climate and weather is the number one topic of conversation. Everything from sunshine hours and water temperature to tropical storms.

There is an important reason why we devote significant space to Florida climate and weather: That’s what you’re asking about the most.

The climate – Florida has seasons and sometimes feels far from tropical. It is actually only the farthest to the southeast, i.e. the Miami area and Florida Keys that can be said to be tropical, the rest of the state has a subtropical climate.

Weather statistics – study the area or place you want to visit. There you see average temperature, precipitation, hours of sunshine and more for the whole year.

Summer weather – not at all as rainy as you might think. Not Thailand weather.

Tropical storms – yes, we offer those too. In the worst case, a hurricane lurks off the coast. You should have respect for the weather in Florida, but the hurricane season should not prevent a visit.

The most remarkable weather record is sunshine every day during over two years. In fact, the sun shines almost always. But it is also important to point out that Florida has both seasons and climate zones, and – not least – that only the southernmost part of the Florida peninsula is classified as a tropical climate.

Despite the seasons and an inevitable winter, the climate and weather in Florida is always so “summery” that socks and long pants rarely are needed. A true floridian barely owns a warm outerwear, the more flip-flops…

In central Florida, like Orlando, however, it may be suitably to wear a warm sweater when the sun has set.

A work in progress

  • This website is a standalone version of Scandinavian Florida.nu. Since the original has been published since 2006, it consists of up to 300 pages of information about Florida. Therefore, it will take time for us to translate everything, it is done manually (no machine translation).
    We focus on meeting the need for up to date information about “New Florida”, such as what the theme parks in Orlando will be like when the state opens to visitors from other parts of the world.
