Now that we have found ourselves in the middle of October, it is time to start discussing the possibilities of colder weather here in Florida. While the weather can vary based on what part of Florida you live in, one thing that the entire state can anticipate is the weather slowly decreasing to a more comfortable and likeable temperature, something that us Floridians have been waiting all year for! Let’s take a look at the different parts of Florida, and find out just how cool of a temperature we can expect during the Halloween month.
1. North Florida
Beginning with the northernmost part of the state, let’s look specifically at Tallahassee, Florida. During the month of October, the average temperature is in the mid 70’s, while the lowest temperature is closer to 70, making it the perfect place to either live or visit during the month of October. With these temperatures, you can dress comfortably in shorts and a t-shirt, or your favorite pair of jeans and a light jacket!
In the middle of the state, you have the great city of Orlando, Florida. What you can expect here in the month of October is an average temperature of 80-82, and a low temperature of 79, showing that it is a little warmer in the middle of the state than the uppermost cities of Florida. This can partially be due to the fact that at the top of Florida, you have the border states of Georgia and South Carolina, two states that continuously get cooler as the later months of the year are among us. Regardless, this weather is still perfect for visitors or local Floridians, as you can wear shorts with a light jacket or continue to rock the t-shirt or tank top.
3. South Florida
Ending with the southernmost part of the state, you have the popular city of Miami, Florida. Perhaps you are thinking that it is going to be warm in this part of the state during the month of October. If so, then you are correct. In Miami for Halloween season, you can expect an average temperature of 83, with a low temperature of 81, making it a particularly warm season for anyone planning on visiting, or for those who live there. While you may not be able to wear a jacket just yet in Miami, you will still be able to wear your favorite sandals and find yourself enjoying the beautiful beaches, although the water might begin to cool as the year progresses closer to November.
What can be determined based on these statistics for October is that no matter what part of the state of Florida you are in, the weather will typically be no hotter than 85, and no cooler than the 60’s, making it the perfect weather to still visit the local theme parks, or wear a light coat or jacket, especially during the evening. This can certainly provide Florida with several perks, as those who might want to find themselves away from states with four seasons can travel down south, and visit a state that has no snow, but consistent and warm temperatures throughout the year.
