By Canadian standards, Florida is warm and sunny all year long. There are seasonal variations in temperatures and weather conditions, with the biggest variable being Hurricane season which occurs from the beginning of June to the end of December. The weather won’t necessarily be bad during this time, but you do take the chance of having a major storm interfere with your holiday.
Peak season depends on which part of Florida you are visiting.
