Hurricanes are possible during this time as weather conditions generally are warmer and the temperatures of the Gulf waters rise. Always follow the instructions of the Collier County Emergency Management department. Advisorys will be set and local area hotels will recommend actions that should be followed for the protection of you and your family. For more information, please visit www.CollierEm.org .

 

 

Florida's nickname is the "Sunshine State", but severe weather is a common occurrence in the state. Florida has the highest average precipitation of any state, in large because afternoon thunderstorms are common in most of the state from late spring until early autumn. A fair day may be interrupted with a storm, only to return to sunshine. These thunderstorms, caused by collisions between airflow from the Gulf of Mexico and the airflow from the Atlantic Ocean, pop up in the early afternoon and can bring heavy downpours, high winds, and sometimes tornadoes, but the tornadoes do not typically reach the intensity of those in the Midwest and Great Plains. Hail often accompanies the most severe thunderstorms. Snow in Florida is a rare occurrence. 

 

Coldfronts can occasionally bring high winds and cool to cold temperatures to the entire state during late fall and winter. The seasons in Marco Island are actually determined more by precipitation than by temperature with mild to cool, relatively dry winters and autumns and hot, wet springs and summers. The Gulf Stream has a moderating effect on the climate, and although much of Marco commonly sees a high summer temperature over 90 degrees F (32 degrees C), the mercury seldom exceeds 100 degrees F (38 degrees C). The hottest temperature ever recorded in the state of Florida was 109 degrees F (43 degrees C), set on June 29, 1931. The coldest was 2 degrees F (-19 degrees C), on February 13, 1899. Mean high temperatures for July are primarily in the low 90s F (32-35 degrees C). Mean low temperatures for late January range from the mid 50s (-13 degrees C) in southern Florida.
