The weather in February
The weather at this time of the year is a little up-and-down. In fact, it can swing quite dramatically from day to day. February is one of the driest months of the year and, so far, we have seen very little rain - but it can be quite cold (60F) one day and very warm (75F) the next. It can seriously swing by 10-12F in 24 hours. And the weather forecasts have been pretty unreliable. We've planned some days based on the weather forecast only for it to change the night before - and I mean from "warm and sunny" to "cool and overcast". I don't think that we'll go home with a tan but, on the other hand, the weather hasn't stopped us doing anything and we're heading for the Everglades tomorrow which should be bug-free, rather than infested with mosquitoes, so there are some definite advantages to going at this time. And the place (especially the parks) is incredibly quiet compared to most other times of the year.
