Florida Weather in February
What’s the weather like in Florida in February?
Known as the ‘Sunshine State’, Florida is in the southeastern United States, close to the Tropic of Cancer. This means it has a wonderful climate with warm weather all year round. You’ll have cooler temperatures in February than over the summer, although it’s one of the driest months of the year so it’s a great time for you to visit. Florida’s on a peninsula that’s the meeting point of the North Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, and the climate is more tropical in the south than the north. As there’s so much water, this usually keeps the weather relatively stable.
The average high in the popular holiday destination of Miami is 24ºC in February, and things stay nice and pleasant in the evenings, which cool to 16ºC. The sea temperature is 24ºC, which is lovely for swimming, while humidity’s low. There’s 56mm of rain over six days, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. Make sure you bring plenty of sun cream as UV levels will be high. The sun goes down at around 6.15pm through much of the month.
