Florida in October - Best Times to Visit

Fall is finally here and many autumnal festivals are celebrated across the state of Florida!

The weather is ideal in Florida this month as the temperatures are cooler with a welcomed break from the blistering summer heat. The average high during the day can reach up to 27C and in the evenings you can start to feel a chill in the air with the temperature dropping to 18C. Rainfall is also decreasing but be wary of tropical storms as hurricane season is still peaking.
