How to best describe south Florida’s climate?
For that we need to look overseas.
During the summer, it’s downright monsoonal.
Hot and humid, we can count on showers most every day. And very powerful storms, too. When I first moved down to Florida, sometime told me about the summer monsoons. Technically, I would later learn – Florida doesn’t have monsoons. But still, during summer, if you had to pick a comparison point: The monsoons of India probably best describe its afternoon downpours.
During the winter, Mediterranean weather moves in.
Mild, little rain, and beautiful sunsets, the southwest coast of Florida fancies itself a newer version of the Italian coast. Architectural, Tuscan architecture is the rage. Although unlike Naples, Italy – the one thing you won’t see it it’s new world namesake is anyone hanging out their clothes to dry.
I often hear people complain …
That Florida doesn’t have seasons.
My view is that its two seasons are continents apart!
