Southwest Florida Climate
Average lows range from 65 °F (18 °C) in Key West to near 41 °F (5 °C) degrees Fahrenheit at Tallahassee, while daytime highs range from 64 °F (18 °C) at Tallahassee to 77 °F (25 °C) at Miami. Predominant tropical easterly winds across central and Southern Florida keep temperatures warm during the winter. Mild winters tend to be ideal for most outdoor kitchen products & materials used in its construction. Summers throughout the state are long, hot, and relatively humid. All in all, there aren’t too many limits when choosing materials for your barbecue island. The only factors that seem to be disadvantageous are the hurricanes and the humidity. A good rule of thumb for the Florida climate, choose finishing materials that have structural integrity and are not affected by prolonged exposure to moisture.
