There is minimal winter. Southwest Florida does call for incredibly hot and humid summers. Rainy season lasts for approximately three months. Hurricanes may impact you directly or indirectly, as the bands can reach across the state from either the gulf or the east coast. It is an emerging area and is relatively close to beaches.
