Florida is divided into two climatic zones: warm temperate in the north and tropical in the south. That said, most of the sunshine state experiences warm weather and plenty of sunshine year round.The summer months in southern Florida can become very hot and sometimes uncomfortable when it gets exceptionally humid. The north is milder, but still very warm. Summers are long, hot, and humid throughout the state, (70% humidity or more) with temperatures averaging in the high 80s to mid 90s (30-35°C) during June, July, and August. Being tropical, the period from late spring to early autumn tends to see a lot of rainfall, which can occur on an almost daily basis. However, these showers generally arrive in the form of thunderstorms, which can appear out of nowhere on a clear day, and then disappear just as quickly. They do little to alleviate the heat and humidity. For tips and suggestions on what to pack when visiting Florida in the summer months, check out "How to Pack for a Summer Trip to Florida." Current weather conditions from over 30 weather stations around Florida. In winter, the weather stays relatively warm but is generally much drier. From early November to late May showers are few and far between. The average temperature in Florida during the winter months is in the low to mid 60s (near 17°C), occasionally getting up into the high 70s (near 25°C). Frost is not unheard of (especially in January and February) in northern areas, so a light jumper is sometimes needed even during the day, and a warmer jacket is often required at night. Snow is a very rare occurrence in Florida, although it has been known to occur in the Panhandle in the north of the state. Pictured above is a palm tree during sunset. Florida has early and warm springs and long autumns that sometimes last well into December. Skies are usually clear, humidity is low, and light showers are only an occasional occurrence. Highs in the spring and autumn hover in the low 80s (26-29°C). Visitors come to Florida all year round for its popular family resorts and beaches. The winter and spring are the most common times for people to visit, particularly the popular Orlando area which can be uncomfortably hot during the summer months. Because it's inland, there are no ocean breezes to relieve any of the humidity, and theme parks and golf courses can feel incredibly hot. Hurricane season in Florida lasts from June 1st to November 30th (although they have been known to occur outside of this period), with the most probability of one arriving between August and October. Hurricanes are violent tropical storms with sustained winds of at least 74 mph. They form over warm ocean waters, and occasionally move inland causing severe damage. Hurricanes originate in the tropical parts of the Atlantic Ocean or the Caribbean Sea and generally move northward. They lose force when they move over land or colder ocean waters. Some hurricanes are stronger than others, and it's important to be aware if one is headed your way. Pictured above is a homeowner taking stock during Hurricane Wilma. If traveling to Florida during hurricane season, keep up to date with the NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) National Weather Service whose job it is to report the position and intensity of storms. Often referred to as the National Hurricane Center, they forecast the future movements of storms and are generally regarded as the most accurate outlet for hurricane information. Before embarking on your trip, consult your travel provider about what to do in case of a hurricane (what to do if you must leave the state, hurricane insurance, etc.).

A Florida vacation is a relaxing and enjoyable treat, but packing for it can be stressful if you don't know what to expect. So help make your vacation packing stress-free by doing a little research and following these tips. WeatherNo matter where in Florida you're going, if it's in the summer months expect hot temperatures. The daytime highs throughout the state range from 30C - 35C (that's the high 80s to low 90s in Fahrenheit), with nighttime lows usually in the low to mid 20s (70s in Fahrenheit). Temperatures are greatly influenced by the surrounding water, which has a moderating effect on both the high and low temperatures. Generally, the interior of the state tends to warm faster and reach higher temperatures during the day while at night temperatures cool more rapidly and fall to a lower degree. You'll want to pack lightweight clothes such as cotton and linen (although remember that linen wrinkles quite a bit), and be sure to bring shorts, tank tops and t-shirts, and for women, sundresses. Shoes with well-insulated soles are a must because the concrete sidewalks absorb the sun and get very hot. Even if you're not much of a swimmer, bring a bathing suit. The extreme heat can coax even the most reluctant swimmers into the cool blue waters - whether it's the ocean or one of the many swimming pools you'll find all over the state. Visit Florida's Weather and Climate page for more information on the weather and climate. Pictured above is a young lady modelling swimwear. Don't forget to pack an umbrella or very lightweight rain jacket. June, July, and August are the rainiest months of the year. During this period thunderstorms are not uncommon, and many welcome them as they provide cooling relief during hot afternoons, but this relief is usually short-lived. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that rain means cold, because these storms don't last long and the heat and humidity often return immediately. They are also often intense with strong winds and lightning, so keep the possibility in mind when planning your daily activities. AtmosphereFlorida enjoys a primarily casual and informal atmosphere. As a general rule, it's always nice to dress up a bit for dinner, but as most restaurants are accepting of shorts and t-shirts, dressing up may not mean the same thing as it does at home. Most people go casual and wear jeans and a casual shirt. Women, if you feel uncomfortable with jeans, wear a nice pair of slacks or capris. And unless you can't live without them, leave the stiletto heels at home and opt for a nice pair of sandals. Men will look appropriate in khakis and a button down shirt. The need for a jacket and tie is very doubtful. Despite the hot temperatures, you might want a lightweight jacket. Indoor facilities are often air conditioned and can be surprisingly cold. What to Pack Besides ClothesThere are two very important things that travelers should pack when visiting Florida in the summer months: sunscreen and bug spray. The Florida sun is extremely strong and it is vital that people not accustomed to it (and even those who are) wear sunscreen with a high SPF. Otherwise you can expect a severe and painful sunburn. There are also a lot of mosquitoes in Florida. While they're not as much of a problem in coastal areas, they are just about everywhere else. Do yourself a favor and bring bug spray with you (especially if you're camping!). These items can easily be purchased when you're in Florida, but you'll likely be glad to have them with you as soon as you arrive. Don't waste time going out to purchase them. Following these simple tips will help ensure that your Florida vacation will be as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. So pack appropriately and have a great time!
