Many people who want to plan a family vacation in Florida worry about hurricane season. The last thing they want is to be vacationing in the state only to have a hurricane come through. Those who are native to the state don’t worry nearly as much about hurricane season as tourists do because they have experienced it and are more familiar with how the season goes.
Hurricane season in Florida runs from June 1st through November 30th each year. Those are the months that the conditions for hurricanes are more favorable due to the water temperature changes. This is also a popular time of the year for people to plan their family vacation in Florida.
Many people like to plan their family vacation in Florida during the summer months because their kids are out of school for summer break. Plus, that is the time of the year when the beaches are more popular because the temperatures are rising and spending time in the water feels great.
So what should you know about hurricane season in Florida when it comes to planning your summer vacation? Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- The peak hurricane time on the Atlantic Coast is mid-September. This means that if you plan your family vacation during the summer break months, you should be fine. Most hurricanes that come through the state tend to do so later in the hurricane season.
- If you are concerned about a family vacation in Florida during hurricane season, choose a destination that is less likely to be hit by one. By viewing the hurricane probability map, you can see that hurricanes are less likely in the Northeast coastal area of the state, down into the Daytona Beach area. Our condo is located in New Smyrna Beach, which puts it in one of the lowest hurricane probability areas.
- Keep in mind that if a hurricane does come to Florida while you are vacationing here, you will have plenty of notice. Unlike a tornado, they don’t just happen on the spur of the moment. People are often given several days’ notice that one is headed in a particular direction, so they can prepare, make plans, and even evacuate if they need to.
- Frequently, no hurricanes hit all season long. Therefore, you may miss a great family vacation in Florida out of a hurricane fear that never arises.
