When does summer begin in Florida?
If we had to pick a number out of the sky it would be 88º F … or is it 70º F?
Neither nights nor shade bring relief to the hot grip of summer in Florida.
The rains do bring relief however, at least locally, after they fall … often in deluges.
That brings us to our second number.
The wet season – often used synonymously with the summer in peninsula Florida – is associated with the latter number – the 70º F mark.
If I had to pick a number, I would say both.
Florida’s summer wet season typically runs from late May through early October.
