Weather & Marine Buoy's

Florida's climate varies by location and we have beautiful weather year round.
We have two seasons, dry winters that averages 80° high and 60° low and humid
summers that averages 90° high and 75° low with 100% humidity.

Sunset at the beachSunsets are spectacular, especially when there are clouds in the sky. Remember to look all around you after the sun sets, the colors reflecting off the clouds can be amazing.

Visit our Hazards to Avoid page for information on avoiding Sun Related Injuries, Extreme Weather, and Hurricanes.

Air Temperatures

During the summer months, the weather can change quickly with predictable afternoon thunder storms rolling through. A thunderstorm can drop the air tempurature 20 degrees in a few minutes. Storms can be strong but move out quickly. If you see dark clouds in the distance, note the direction of the wind and you can judge where the storm is going. Even though it is hot in the summer, always pack a light jacket or long sleeve shirt for unexpected storm protection or to get your skin out of the sun.

In the winter months we experience cold front that force us locals to turn the heat on in our houses. The water can be cold and strong winds make it colder. Always dress in layers when out fishing in the winter, the sun can warm you up quickly, so bring a jacket for sudden temperature drops, especially on the water.

Water Temperatures

In the winter the Gulf temperature can go into the 60's and feel down right cold. Locals won't put a toe in the water until it reaches 80 degrees in mid-April. In the summer the Gulf can get over 90 degrees, not very refreshing! The water clarity in the winter months is great, but with the warm summer waters, algae blooms and clouds the water making snorkeling and diving visibility minimal, but good for fishing.
