I agree! Bring on the Heat!

I’ll be moving from CT to FL (West Palm) in December and I absolutely cannot wait to feel warmth year-round. Yes... once my blood thins 60’s will probably feel chilly but for now it’s welcomed! I sat in my backyard earlier today with short sleeves and sandals on. I’ve lived in CT majority of my 37 years... with 3/mo in SC and 6/mo in TN but vacationing there past 2 years I fell in love. I can’t do the snow/cold anymore here and as others have said - our Winters last FOREVER! Starts getting chilly in September and doesn’t really get >70F until May.

Hoax ?

Why is my boat dock under water at high tide ? Why does the city I live in require any construction on the sea wall be raised 12 inches do to global warming? These lots were constructed in the 70,s. Only in the last 5 years are the docks submerged at high tide? Why are whole islands like Itami beach inundated with rising sea levels? There is nothing hoaxing about rising sea levels.


The 1970s was a time when you could bribe government officials to get your seawall built. But after Hurricane Andrew swept through South Miami and brought down entire neighborhoods, the local government revised the regulations resulting in tighter rules about codes. So if your seawall was built by Fly By Night industries and Shady McShady Construction, the consumer will have to now pay through the nose to get the wall up to code.
If the sea was truly rising or falling the way global warming experts say it is, then why is my house exactly 8 feet above sea level, the same as it has been in 20 years. How come topographically it has not moved. Shouldn't I be on top of a mountain by now or be able to see starfish by looking out my window?
Look, you can believe whatever you want but don't try to blow smoke up my crack. Perhaps you should stop smoking crack all together and do some research on your own instead of listening to those airheads on CNN. The water levels are going down because we are draining our water basins from consumption. Hmm, that makes sense. Oh really? Then what happens when we flush a toilet? Does the water vaporize and end up on Mars?
Well I have to go now. I think I saw Sasquatch walking by and I have to go feed the Loch Ness Monster who currently lives in my swimming pool. By the way, I hate to tell you this but the Great Pumpkin is also a hoax.


The weather here is beautiful. Where i came here from its already 20 degrees and snowing. I vacationed here every year prior to moving here. In my opinion its not as hot or humid as it was before. Then again perhaps im just comfortable here. I love florida and im here to stay.

It is hotter!

I have lived in Tampa for 60+ years and the last few years have been much hotter than normal. Global warming has definitely influenced our weather. The cold fronts don't make it here as often. I can recall years ago we cooled off after October and it didn't jump back into the 90's until July. We've had 90's in December in recent years. I really do wish the cooler weather would return a bit earlier in the fall & winter months. But then again I'm not scrapping ice off my windshield in January.


global temperatures have stayed stable for the past 15 years over all. Last year, Florida had it's coldest winter in 30 years, this winter might mirror the winter of 1976-1977.


I have been here for 60 years and its not hotter then it was then. I remember wearing shorts on Christmas when I was a kid with all fans going, running barefoot outside. we had no heat in winter cause we literally had no winter, what cool nights we had we enjoyed


I’m a Florida Native, and I know a rareity. I was born in Key West, but spent the majority of my life on the Homosassa River. I now reside in Safety Harbor. Yes, the summers are long and brutal, however I suspect folks from up north feel the same way about the winter. Come October I’m ready for the heat to be gone and long for some cool air. There has been times at Halloween where the weather has been cool and other times hot!!! Makes for costume a challenge because one year my son was a tiger and he was sweating to death in the costume. Florida does offer a diverse landscape though. I know from living on the river with the beautiful springs and swimming with manatees, which I miss immensely. To our never ending coastline.

This has to be the hottest

This has to be the hottest and most humid summer on record, especially in the northern part of the state where there now seems to be no difference from the southern part with heat/humidity/heat index. I live in north FL, only 1 1/2 hours from Georgia. It's never been like this for so long before here. When I lived in South FL I would expect this a lot more, but this isn't how it should be in north FL. Global warming has really gotten us now. Other states get to have seasons. In other states the long hot summer is over. But no such luck or hope here in Florida. I'm starting to think that Fall or Spring will no longer exist here at all, it's going to be constantly extremely hot regardless of the season except for maybe the winter months. Spring this year here was pleasant, I don't know why that doesn't seem to be possible again. It should be, weather patterns haven't gone completely haywire since this Spring. I don't know why this has happened but this has ruined all of Florida's charm for me and I think I'll probably move out of state, as painful as it would be to do so since I have a lot of family members in this state. This isn't the Florida I know, especially not the north Florida I know and I've been in north FL for 10 years (south FL for 15 years). But maybe this almanac is right and starting Oct 8 it will improve. Who knows.

Central Fl. cold fronts

I've been in the New Port Richey (25 miles N. of Tampa) area for 42 years. And for all that time, the weather has not changed a bit. From May to mid October it's in the mid 90's. Between Oct. 12th to the 17th, the 1st cold front reaches the area and drops the humidity way down and the temps go to the high 80's for a couple of days. Then it goes right back up to the 90's until Nov. when the 2nd cold front comes thru. From then on until may it's in the low 80's in the day and the 60's in the morning until May. 6 months it's hot as hell then 6 months it's great with an occasional frost and 60 degree days in Feb.
