What's the weather like in Florida in October?
Situated in the southeast of the United States close to the Tropic of Cancer, Florida has fabulous warm weather all year round. Although it’s left summer behind in October, the ‘Sunshine State’ will still give you high temperatures, as well as less rain than over summer.
Florida’s located on a peninsula that divides the North Atlantic Ocean from the Gulf of Mexico. It has tropical weather in the south while the north’s subtropical. This means temperatures stay high over the entire year, while the weather’s more stable than other tropical destinations because there’s so much surrounding water. Rain’s most common over summer, so October’s a great time to book holidays to Florida.
In Miami you'll get an average high of 29ºC in October, and things stay nice and warm in the evenings; temperatures only drop to 23ºC at night so you won’t need to bring many warm clothes. The sea’s a lovely and warm 28ºC, which is perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high and there’s 144mm of rain over 14 days. You can expect 12 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine at a very high UV level, so make sure you pack your sun cream. Sunset’s around 7pm for most of the month.
