“What’s the weather like on Anna Maria during that time of the year?” Outside of questions regarding our homes and things to do on Anna Maria Island, the most common questions we receive surround the subject of weather conditions. Anna Maria Island enjoys an average annual high temperature of 80F and more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Those stats have earned Florida the nickname, “The Sunshine State”.
With all the great stats available to us via the internet weather sites, we thought a great subject matter to tackle is the debunking of a couple of myths about the weather on Anna Maria Island – oppressive heat in the summer and winter being the best time of the year.
“It’s too hot during the summer”
Temperature tolerance is different for each of us. For those concerned about melting away in the summer heat, we have really good news for you.
During the summer months from June-August, the average daily high temperatures range from 90F-91F on Anna Maria Island – not too bad at all! Helping to offset that heat are the 5-15mph tropical breezes felt most prominently on the beach, and the Gulf of Mexico which is typically 5-10 degrees cooler than the air temps. Furthermore, we highly recommend the use of a large beach umbrella to assist in providing for a most enjoyable day on the beach.
For comparison sake, inland cities in Florida (like Orlando) are several degrees warmer, at 96-99F, with greater humidity and less frequent cooling winds – making for some serious sweltering heat.
The great news for our guests concerned with escaping the heat is the fact, Cozy Cottage or Cozy Cabana, are only 2-3 minutes by foot from the beach. So, when you’ve had enough sun for the day, stroll up to the house, turn on the TV, and rest in complete comfort. Both homes have new air conditioning units, ceiling fans and refreshing, private pools!
“The best weather of the year is in the winter”
Every year residents from the northern U.S., Canada and other cold weather countries look for an escape from “Old Man Winter”. They flock to vacation rental homes all over Florida in search of sunny skies and warmer temps. Anna Maria Island offers just that with its sunny, warm weather – which is why many people think the months from January to April offers the best weather of the year.
It may be surprising to some of you, but historical weather statistics indicate other months offer an equally perfect vacationing environment – especially if you’re interested in smaller crowds and off-season pricing. The months of May and mid-September through December offer the best historical weather statistics in terms of ideal temperatures – both air and water. Average daily highs ranging from 75F-87F and water temps hovering around 80F delivers near perfection conditions for your vacation getaway to Cozy Cottage or Cozy Cabana. On top of that, these months feature the driest months on average – meaning more fun in the sun for you – at off-peak pricing!
