I have lived here for 40 years and my first summer in Florida was never this hot. I did not have air conditioning in my apartment then and I was perfectly fine. Today I would not be able to live here without it. The summer is a lot hotter compared to then and Global Warming is not a hoax. It is for real. Although the summers are a lot hotter the winters make up for the heat we feel in the summer. Too bad we have to put up with all the people and cannot enjoy our winters here as snowbirds seem to think it is okay to be on the road while we are trying to get to work in the morning and they are site seeing and driving 20 miles an hour on a highway.

Florida - love it or leave it, your choice

I have lived literally all over Florida, north, south, east and west FL for 40 years. Why on earth would anyone complain about the weather and still live here? It's not hotter than it use to be and its no more humid than before. Global warming is a hoax. Its called "weather" and weather changes in cycles over several years. Even the Bible speaks of seven years of drought and famine. Florida is a great state with lots to offer. Focus on the positive and live your life in peace. Otherwise, go north or west. The running joke is that no one retires and moves up north.

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 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.
