Located in Florida, aptly nicknamed the Sunshine State, Jacksonville unsurprisingly experiences a humid subtropical climate with distinct seasons.
Residents should expect mild winters (December to February) where temperatures range between 5°C (41°F) and 20°C (68°F). Summers (June to August) are hot and humid with temperatures reaching up to 33°c (91°F). Thunderstorms, caused by high levels of humidity, bring heavy rainfall during the summer months.
Despite Jacksonville’s location on the edge of a hurricane belt, the city manages to avoid the full force of these. Tropical storms are fairly common during hurricane season, between August and October.
