Southwest Florida, laid along the Gulf of Mexico between Fort Myers and The Everglades, is also known as “The Paradise Coast.” It has a subtropical climate that brings warm temperatures year round, balmy tropical breezes, sunny skies and occasional thunderstorms. Also known as a “Mediterranean-type” climate, the Southwest Gulf Coast region has long, languid summers and mild dry winters.
Most rain occurs between the months of June through September, showers and thunderstorms are generally brief, though sometimes heavy. More often than not, the sun is shining again within minutes. Or, you may even have the pleasure to experience an energizing sun-filled downpour. Winters are nothing short of delightful, with near perfect daytime temperatures and cool evenings. Hurricane season in Florida generally runs late August through November.
