Making the Most of Florida Before Rainy Season
Florida’s rainy season is officially from May 15th through October 15th and anyone Florida resident knows that during this time of year rain can strike at any moment. In fact, approximately 70 percent of Florida’s annual rainfall comes within that 5 month range. Florida homeowners recognize that this is the time of year to take measures to protect their homes. Clearing the gutters and keeping the lawn tidy are two important steps to take.
While we know a lot about rainy season, we spend little time discussing the months between. April is the month that Florida historically receives the least amount of rain. So, this is the best month to get outside and enjoy the beautiful temperatures and clear skies. Plus, the ocean temperatures typically rise again during this time of year, making it a great time to visit Florida’s beaches.
Weather experts are predicting that Florida will see a slight variation from the norm this spring season. So, April and May will actually be hotter than normal, with rainfall below normal averages in the South Florida. With this in mind, we thought it would be nice to make a few recommendations as to things to do in this beautiful weather. The following are some great outdoor activity ideas for you and your family:
