Climate

The climate of North and Central Florida is humid subtropical whereas South Florida has a tropical climate.

Florida's rainy season occurs during June through September, this is the time also referred to as the hurricane season. Between October and May fronts regularly sweep through the state which keeps conditions dry, particularly over the peninsula. Towards the end of the dry season in the spring, brush fires become common statewide. In winters where an El Nino climate cycle exists, rainfall increases while temperatures are cooler statewide. Snow and sleet have been witnessed as early as November and as late as April, though most areas do not experience any frozen precipitation during a typical year.

Easterly winds off the warm waters of the Gulf Stream running through the Florida Straits keep temperatures moderate across the southern peninsula year round.
