Florida Keys Weather & Climate

Florida Keys islands are the sub-tropical Caribbean of the United States

No matter where you are currently, the weather is always better right here in the Florida Keys. It's true even on a summer day! Even at the peak of summer, the average high is about 89° F (32° C). A the islands are surrounde by cooling ocean waters and tropical breezes. No superhighways or urban sprawl to radiate the summer sun's heat and humidity.

Mainland Floridians from the Mainland, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Fort Myers, West Palm Beach all flock to the Keys on steamy weekends just because the air is usually a few degrees cooler in the Keys.

The refreshing ocean waters provide fun for swimming, snorkeling or diving. Cold fronts bring fost to mainland Florida in the winter, but the Keys never get frost. That is why scuba divers or snorkelers usually get away with a wet suit called the "shorties" as temperatures in the water are average mid-70s.

It almost never rains in the Keys during winter months, and by late May, the thunderstorms start but really stay long enough to spoil your day and fun in the Keys. The Hurrican season begins June 1st and ends November 30. But the potential for hurricanes to happen is between Aug. 15 and Oct. 15. During these months you can enjoy some of the most beautiful weather of the year, even the waters are warm and calm.
