Sea Colony enjoys a delightful subtropical climate, with mild weather during winters and warm weather during summers. In North-East Florida we have more seasonal variation than southern locations, but sea breezes and the proximity to the ocean moderate the temperature extremes and attract beach lovers year round. St. Augustine Beach climate is warm during the summer and cool during the winter. Sea breezes and proximity to the ocean typically moderate the warmer inland temperatures during the summer and cooler inland temperatures during winter months. These temperatures attract beach goers throughout the year, from the inland south during the summer months and northerners during the winter ‘snow bird’ season.
The warmest month of the year is July, while the coldest month of the year is January. Temperature differences between night and day tend to be fairly limited due to the proximity of the ocean. Average annual precipitation is only about 47 Inches, the cooler months being drier than the summer months when short-term rainfall events are more common.
Jeb Bush, a former governor, once said that Florida does experience significant rainfall and wind events. Yes, hurricanes are an annual concern for Florida residents, but the likelihood to experience a significant hurricane event is not uniform throughout Florida. In fact, the eye of an Atlantic hurricane is less likely to be hit the northeast coast of Florida than coastlines further to the south or the entire Gulf Coast. Records of Atlantic hurricane paths show that the eyes of Atlantic storms have not hit Florida north of Cape Canaveral.
The more likely scenario for tropical storms paths in the vicinity of Sea Colony are eyes of hurricanes skirting, but not hitting the coast as they curve northward or eastward or are Gulf storms that are attenuated as they cross Florida. Most homes in Sea Colony were built according to storm building codes required by standard developed after hurricane Andrew devastated residential areas in south Florida.
