Tallahassee, like much of Florida, experiences a humid subtropical climate, with long, hot summers and short, mild winters. Here’s a general overview of the weather:
Winter (December to February): This is the driest period of the year, with average high temperatures ranging from the 60s to low 70s°F (15-23°C). This can be a great time to visit to escape colder weather elsewhere.
Spring (March to May): Temperatures start to climb into the 70s and 80s°F (20-30°C). The city begins to see more rainfall, particularly towards the end of spring. The scenery is beautiful during this season with flowers blooming.
Summer (June to August): Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures often in the 90s°F (32-37°C), along with frequent afternoon thunderstorms. This is the rainiest time of the year.
Fall (September to November): The weather begins to cool down slightly, though September can still be quite hot. Average high temperatures fall from the 80s in September to the 70s°F (20-26°C) in November. Rainfall begins to decrease during this period.
The best time to visit Tallahassee really depends on what you’re looking for. If you want to avoid the heat and enjoy outdoor activities, spring and fall can be great times to visit. If you’re looking to escape colder winter temperatures, then winter can be a pleasant time to visit. Keep in mind that Tallahassee, unlike much of Florida, can occasionally see near-freezing temperatures in winter, so it’s best to check the forecast in advance of your trip.
