The weather in Tallahassee is mild year-round, but it has its tricky moments. In the fall, the weather is usually warm and pleasant, but some days can be very hot and humid. The temperatures can range from 60 to 90 degrees all in one day. During the first half of the fall semester, students still wear their summer clothing.
The fall semester falls in hurricane season, and it’s normal to expect some rainfall and thunderstorms. The last part of the fall semester is humid, but a cold front usually comes along around mid-November. Luckily, FAMU students experience mild winters. In the spring semester, the weather is breezy and cold, with lows in the 50s. But, FAMU students should expect a lot of sunshine—Florida is known as the “Sunshine State” for a reason! Overall, the weather is great year-round; it’s never too cold and rarely too hot, although the humidity can be a bit bad sometimes.
