The climate of most of Florida is categorized as humid subtropical though the very southernmost part of the state is fully tropical.  As a result, Florida tends to experience a very wet rainy season at least 4 months out of the year, from June to September.  Because of its coastal location as a peninsula, Florida is of course susceptible to hurricanes, but many are surprised to hear that Florida is actually one of the most tornado-prone states.  The months of the rainy season bring the highest risk of tropical cyclones.

For the rest of the year, Florida's temperatures are mild to moderate.  It is not unheard of to experience a 70 degree day in the winter in mid- or south Florida, which is why it remains the top state for migrating "snow birds" who wish to spend their winters in moderate temperatures.  Though average summer temperatures tend to peak in the low 90s, daily afternoon and early evening thunderstorms provide a break from the heat.
