Wouldn’t it be nice if weather could be guaranteed? Since it’s not, knowing the past provides a glimpse of the average temps and precipitation for insight when planning a beach vacation. The five-month beach weather season (when it’s hottest and ocean temps are pleasantly warm for swimming), is May through September.

Some like that Amelia Island is the coolest place in the state. Here in northeast Florida, there’s more seasonal change than further south in Florida. Many residents enjoy a break from Florida’s hot, humid summer weather. It’s also a time when fewer people are at the beach.

Amelia Island’s Hurricane History

Two “close calls” with hurricanes, two years in a row (Matthew in October 2016 and Irma in September 2017), resulted in mandatory evacuation of Amelia Island, FL. This was an unusual time for this area of northeast Florida and nearby southeast Georgia, with two major tropical storms eleven months apart. There have only been three mandatory evacuations of Amelia Island in the past 25+ years. Overall, islanders were lucky all three times (including Hurricane Floyd back in 1999).
