Cape Coral Weather is the best! So much warmth and sunshine, pool or beach anyone?!
From daytime highs of 75 degrees in January to days of 95 degrees in August, we have on average, only 10 days each year that are not sunny.
Our Cape Coral climate is subtropical, which means moderate, dry winters ...... and hot, humid, rainy summers.
We average about 53 inches of rain each year.
Most people think it's too hot down here in the summer, but I'm more comfortable here in the summer than I was when I lived in Connecticut.
That's because we have the constant comfort of our air conditioner, which is on from April through November.
And, most of winter is like a lovely spring day up north, but with lots of sun and little rain.
We are fortunate to have gulf breezes, so it's often cooler here in the summer than northern states and the interior of Florida.
In Florida, if I'm outside in the heat, either I'm at the pool or walking to it.
Back in Connecticut I had asked myself, would I rather go from heat to heat, or a/c to a/c ...... you know the answer!
Did you know this? Cape Coral is one of the safest places to live if you have asthma because of the weather and climate, and other factors.
Be aware that SW Florida is the lightning capital of the world. Do not mess around when storms threaten, get out of the pool, off the golf course, and away from the beach.
Get inside if you can and make sure your kids are inside as well. Each year we hear about kids getting struck and killed while in the pool.
To play it safe, you can get a lightning detection app on your smartphone such as "Lighting Finder" or "WeatherBug Spark".
Your car is grounded and offers protection, though on rare occasions cars get hit and can be severely damaged. Here are some interesting facts:
Getting back to a happier subject, our favorite months to go to the beach are March, April, October and November when the temperatures are in the low 80's....... perfect! Of course, you can enjoy the beaches anytime all year round.
When my parents lived in Connecticut, they got USA Today. Through the winter, they always checked Cape Coral weather, and it was often the warmest spot on the map.
Now they live here! They had planned to move to Kansas City to retire but stayed with me for the month of March one year and couldn't resist moving here instead.
Here's another bit of information ......... I was happy to find out recently that the Cape is considered by several sources to be the best place to live in the whole country for those suffering from asthma. It helps that we don't have cold weather, we have consistent pollen levels, and little or no air pollution.
Cape Coral weather is my kind of weather!
