If you're new to South Florida, you may not realize that

seasons here are mercurial.

For instance, some years we have a nice cool spring, and other years it's winter one day and summer the next.

Consistently cooler (or warmer) temperatures indicate the seasons have actually changed.

In a typical year: Spring - April through early May. 

Summer - mid-May through early October. 

Autumn - mid-October through early December.

Winter - mid-December through March.
