Climate in Southwest Florida

Florida is called the sunshine state for a good reason.  The average annual temperature in Southwest Florida is 74 degrees.  Temperatures range from the mid 90’s in the summer to upper 60’s in the winter.  In the winter you only need a light jacket in the morning or evening.  In the summer the breeze off of the Gulf keeps you comfortable most of the time.  It keeps the temperatures from exceeding 100 degrees even during the dog days of summer.  Prevailing winds are an easterly average of 12-18mph.

The rainy season is in the summer and early fall.  Typically there are rain showers in the late afternoon/evening just in time to cool things down.  The average yearly rainfall is approximately 50 inches, with two-thirds occurring from June to September.  Frequent lightening and heavy downpours are common during these rainmaking events, but they do not last long.  This is also the season for tropical storms and hurricanes.  Residents just need to keep a close eye on the weather and developing systems. 

Southwest Florida is paradise.  Floridians don’t have to deal with the winter blues and that is why we get so many “snow birds” from the frozen North who return again and again.  Come see what we are all about.  Thinking of moving here?  I would be happy to show you some homes in our area.  Contact me today at tammyhayesre@gmail.com.

Fishing in Charlotte County Florida

Charlotte Harbor is world famous for its tarpon fishing and sailing and boating waters. Fishing is a major attraction here.  There are charter boats that will take you out into the Gulf of Mexico.  You can catch tarpon, grouper, mackerel or snapper.  You can also fish in the passes, off bridges, or in the coves.  Here you can catch snook, trout or even sheepshead.  You can obtain a fishing license at the Charlotte County tax collector’s office or local bait shops.  Whether you are just visiting or would like to make Charlotte County your new home, call me today.  I would be happy to show you some homes in our area.

Punta Gorda – One of the Best Places to Live in FL

Money Magazine has named Punta Gorda as one of the best places to live in America several years in a row.  Why?  The city has been transformed since hurricane Charley in 2004.  It has a charming and historic waterfront with restaurants and shops.  Boating and fishing are also major attractions.   It has clean air, 129 square miles of sparkling water, sunshine, and a sub-tropical climate. The crime rate is low and it offers great values on waterfront properties.  Call me today if you want to see what Punta Gorda has to offer.
