Summer

You can probably guess that summer is the hottest season in Marco Island, Florida. During the months of June, July, and August, low temperatures stay in the 70s and high temperatures can get as high as 90 degrees. The hottest time of the day is typically early to mid-afternoon, making this the perfect time to explore some indoor activities or enjoy the ocean or the pool.

Luckily,┬ásummer is also the wet season on Marco Island. While this might not initially sound like a good thing, we can guarantee you’ll appreciate the afternoon shower that cools the island down for a relaxing evening.┬áDuring the summer months, each day typically experiences a 60% to 70% chance of rain, and the average monthly rainfall is around 6 inches per month.

Fall

As the fall weather starts to come in, you’ll have a much more bearable time dealing with the weather on Marco Island, FL. For the fall months of September, October, and November, low temperatures tend to stay in the 60s and high temperatures stay in the 80s. You’re likely to experience the warmest temperatures in mid-afternoon, so if you want to take a cool stroll on the beach, we recommend going in the early morning or closer to sunset.

As far as precipitation, fall holds the end of the wet season. There’s still a 50% to 60% chance of rain daily during September, but this chance drops to around 20% for October and November. You might want to pack a light jacket in case you hit an afternoon shower, but you likely won’t need an umbrella. If it does rain, it likely won’t be much; average monthly rainfall during the fall months ranges from 2 to 4 inches.

Winter

If you want slightly cooler temperatures, book one of our Marco Island condo rentals during the winter. For the months of December, January, and February, low temperatures stay in the 60s and high temperatures stay around 70 degrees. This is the perfect time for you to experience outdoor activities without sweating all day long! The early morning and evening tend to be cool in the winter, but the afternoon temperatures tend to be quite comfortable.

Winter is the dry season for Marco Island, with daily precipitation chances hovering from 10% to 20%. In the rare case that it does rain, average monthly rainfall is only around 2 inches, so you don’t have anything to worry about. You might still want to bring a jacket or a pair of jeans for your outdoor activities, but you shouldn’t need anything heavy or waterproof.

Spring

When spring finally comes, Marco Island experiences a welcome rise in temperature. The months of March, April, and May tend to see low temperatures in the 60s and high temperatures in the 80s. Much like in the fall, you’re likely to experience the hottest temperatures in early to mid-afternoon, while morning and evening temperatures are preferable for most.

If you’re visiting in March or April, you’re only likely to see rain about 20% of the time; however, if you plan a vacation for May, that chance shoots up to around 50%. Average monthly rainfall for March and April hovers around 2 inches, while the month of May can get up to 6 inches of rain. If your vacation is later in the spring, bringing an umbrella might not be a bad idea.
