I love the weather in Orlando. We have lived there since 1971. It’s a great city with great weather.

florida weather

We have lived here since 1980. I love the weather. Six months of 80-58 f and mostly dry, with 2 months of hotish and damp, then 4 months of 97-80F rain every day and high humidity. Salt water fishing, fresh water fishing, skying, snorkeling, diving, hiking, beach days and nights, shorts for most occasions, bonfires and fireplace fires in Dec and Jan., outside dinning year around, grilling and smoking year around, pools, lakes, flat roads for bikes, fresh water fishing everywhere you turn,,, good, good, stuff. Too many yankees in the winter.

Florida a great place to live

I was born and raised in North FLORIDA, on a 50 acre farm.
A wonderful childhood good people,
The weather come it seems in cycles, I've lived them all, the last few years we were in a drought situation, now we are getting much replenishing rain, I would rather have it like that, pastures are green and livestock is eating without supplements! We have Sunshine everyday, and we have rain, there is time to do most of what you want to get done, watch the weather!! It has been very very wet, but take what Blessings God gives you and be thankful we are not burning up by wildfires. Child predators and crime well that's just every where.

Sunshine State

I can get pretty much anything to grow here, plenty of rain and sun for the plants at least. The Sunshine state thing is well, catchier than punishing sun, ultra rainy and humid hurricane state. There are more instances of rain than anywhere else in the continental US. Moved here from Southern California 9 years ago (against my wishes and better judgement) when I hear people say the weather here is great it is usually a North Easterner that is a snowbird or lived in some hellish conditions like death valley and the middle east. IF you are a North Easterner trying to get away from the snow, Arizona is a much better year round destination, Prescott especially has some elevation to it so it isn't nearly as hot in the summer. There are a lot of good people here, but because of the cheap real estate it has attracted many undesirables from other states, at least half the people here came from somewhere else and don't care about a sense of community or take pride in keeping there house, street, city clean or just being a nice human being. Like scum trickling down a drain, the scumbags and child molesters (tons here BTW, I get offenders notices all the time) make their way down, down, down to Florida. Lots of people here with bags of chips on there shoulders thinking they are owed something. So much litigation and people on disability that are fine just over taxing the system, not as many illegal immigrants here than in So Cal, but frankly I preferred the hard working Mexican people than to the leeches we get from the surrounding islands that suck as much aid as they can out of the state. So, Florida is great for raising plants, but you don't want to raise your kids here or even live here year-round. Great place to visit in the winter because Florida hasn't even had a semi decent winter since 09, sometimes we just get two weeks or so of cold weather, then it goes to bearable for a few months, then for about 6-7 months it is just terrible, I feel sorry for the kids growing up here because of the heat and rain they don't get to have a normal summer, I propose the Lawmakers in Florida actually do something about it and make the winter break the long one and the summer break a couple weeks, people can still take summer vacations, but the kids will be able to play outside all day without worry of heat-stroke. I'm just telling it like it is, nothing against the great state of Florida, but I think people need to really know the facts instead of some anecdotal evidence from a winter vacation here.

Sunshine State

Wow, this is an extremely harsh comment about Florida and it’s residents. I’ve lived here for 45 years and love it. It is also a great place to raise kids. Our weather is great. Yes it gets warm but it gets much hotter in other parts of our country.

Sunshine State

I have lived in Florida the majority of my life, I have traveled through out the East coast although it does not get very cold here and the leaves do not change, maybe the lawns from lack of rain.. lol, It is beautiful. Especially down south, Beautiful beaches and amazing state parks. Florida is not for everyone. It is hot, but the pool is amazing, it is rainy but you bet cha in 15 mins after the monsoon leaves, the sky is beautiful! I am partial to the mountains, but i can live comfortably here and raise my son.

The 3 Weather Zones of FLA

Florida has three distinct weather zones - North, Central and South. North - FL-GA state line to Ocala, Central - The Villages to Lake Okeechobee and South - everything south. The Gulf has a huge effect on the central sections weather. When prevailing winds are from the west this sets up the predictable summer monsoon. The north is affected by the large land mass to the north and west with the expected class of warm and moist with dry at Jacksonville most afternoons. The south is basically the Caribbean and will be the first to get storms and flow from the east. I've lived her most of life and the "old-timers" always told me that the FL weather cycle is about 40 years long (give or take 2 or 3 years). This is the pattern I remember from about 40 years ago - rain, rain, rain and a hurricane (David) in Central Florida.

South Florida rain

I was born & raised here and my Mother before me. I remember in the mid and late 60's you could set your watch by the daily afternoon rain storms
And when it changed and they didn't come it was sad. It had gaven relief from the heat. In '83 I bought a snack bar on a golf course. That winter it rained (every day) all day the whole winter. My only customers were workers. In early 70's we had a Christmas hitting 98. The red melted off the
candy canes on the tree. In '77 we had snow one day early a.m. Early 80's we had a Christmas it was a low of 28 in the daytime. My Mother and her family wintered here every year. Some winters they went swimming in January and some winters they had to light the turpentine heaters against bitter cold It is weather. I remember the same type of changes throughout the country. So sorry people are unhappy bur that is weather.
have to take the bad with the good. All good wishes!!!

florida weather

depends where you live in florida.january-april had wonderfull cold nights.was 22 in april.than bam it was 80'.west central fl.has completely different weather than say south florida.
have lived here off and on for 50 yrs and the last ten or so its been very dry.normal is drenching rain daily in june and july.we are not out of the drought.flooding doesn't mean you have had "enough" rain just that it came too fast and crappy drainage.
florida is massivelly overpopulated and overbuilt.the power plants cant keep up and are falling apart.the watertable is disappearing.resources in general are being depleted.

Far far the worst year in

Far far the worst year in Florida everyday rain rain rain been here for 28 years and moving back to the North East this year thank God
