South Florida….always winter in paradise!

South Florida….always winter in paradise!

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, during the winter season, you will find that we South Floridians celebrate (and try really hard not to “rub it in” to our friends and relatives up north).

As the winter solstice has not long passed, marking the longest evening of the year, and South Floridians just love to make good use of the beginning of longer days of sunshine.

According to Wild Florida Eco Travel Guide, “South Florida is subtropical and balmy year-round.  Daytime highs are in the mid 70’s even in the coolest months of December, January, and February.”  Moreover, yes…we have sun!  According to Current Results, “Of course, places located farther south have more minutes of daylight in a winter day and so more time available for the sun to shine.  That means 66 percent sun, for instance, works out to more hours of sunshine….in southern Florida than at more northern Reno or Dodge City.”

So why is it that we need sunscreen instead of snow skis in South Florida in the winter?

According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA®), “It is summer in June in the Northern Hemisphere because the sun’s rays hit that part of Earth more directly than at any other time of the year.  It is winter in December in the Northern Hemisphere, because that is when it is the South Pole’s turn to be tilted toward the sun.”

We conclude with a sentence by Maggie Fernandez from her blog post, “The Winter of Our Content,” “Ahhhhh. Yes.  Winter here in South Florida.”
