Celestial fall officially started …
on September 21st.
But in south Florida,
it’s still a waiting game before autumn starts to kick in.
Daytime highs are still in the high 80s and night time lows are still above 70 degrees.
According the book Florida Winter, fall in Florida officially commences with the onset on two consecutive nights that drop below 60 degrees. The animated map below shows that typically happens around the fourth month of November for south Florida.
If that seems like a long wait,
Not to worry: Fall doesn’t happen in one fell swoop.
We get plenty of signs along the way.
