October lies during the autumn in Florida and is the end of the wet season. By the end of the month, the number of storms reduces substantially, although a few hurricanes may stretch beyond the season. Average high temperatures drop in the 80°F (26.7°C) to 82°F (27.8°C), while the average low temperatures are in the 60°F (15.6°C) to 75°F (23.9°C) across the state. The sunshine lasts up to 7 hours a day, there is no shortage of sunny days, although the cloud cover and rain is substantial to the tune of an average of 5" (127mm) across the state. Nights are colder than the days as Crestview in the Florida Panhandle registers one of the lowest average temperatures of 54°F (12.2°C). It is advisable to avoid Florida in October as better times in the dry season lie ahead - it is prudent to wait for the end of the hurricane season as nature and intensity of the ocean waves due to the impact of the storms is highly unpredictable.
