Atmospheric drift from continent?

Naples is starting to "separate" from the rest of Florida.

No, this isn’t a case of peninsular-style continental drift.

Summer's over in south Florida ...
not that it's cold, either.

What I mean is that winter is being kept at bay on the south peninsula whereas other parts of Florida to the north, such as Tallahassee are taking on a distinctive continental air.

This is especially noticeable at night.

Nighttime lows in Naples have been hovering in the sixties.

Compare that to Tallahassee and Atlanta where night air in November routinely plunged into the Boston-like forties (and even below).

Winter sunsets in Naples are usually not that cold.

You know you’re a south Floridian if you think Atlanta gets cold!
