Weather is extremely important and variable in South Florida. If you have ever complained about the weather down here you have probably heard someone say, "Well wait 15 minutes and it will change." South Florida does not have four seasons; it only has two, a wet season and a dry season. The dry season is during the winter and early spring months. The wet season is the summer and fall when afternoon thunderstorms, tropical moisture and hurricanes dominate the weather.  

For real time weather reports from the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Weather Station at the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island, Florida call (772) 225-2300.
