Definitions: Florida fall and winter

Temperatures have dropped a few degrees,

But midday in Naples, FL still has a summer feel.

This chart shows a comparison of daytime highs and nighttime lows up the Florida peninsula and east coast.  Labor Day marks and end of summer up on the continent whereas down on the peninsula warm summer-like temperatures linger on.

So do Orlando and Tallahassee,

But the difference is in their nighttime lows.

Official cold front standards for South Florida are when the nighttime low drops below 60° F.  A winter day is when the daytime high doesn't break 70° F.

Not fall and winter by normal standards but it is here.
