The Dry (Winter) Season
Amid the many aspects that make the Florida Everglades such a one-of-a-kind place, its seasonal variations spark the most interest. The South Florida marsh doesn’t experience the traditional four seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall). Instead, the Everglades only have two: the winter season and the summer season. They are also known as the “dry season” and “wet season.” Moreover, visitors will not encounter a “killing” frost in winter, nor changes in fall foliage. Instead, the seasonal changes here are expressed through shifting water levels and disparity in wildlife activity.
The winter season ranges from December through April. During this time, it rains less, and water levels decrease. It also happens to be the most popular time for RV visitors. At the same time, average temperatures range from upper 70s to the low 50s. As a result, there are fewer insects, and many birds have migrated south for the winter. During the dry season, vacationers can expect to see plenty of fish and alligators, because the shallow waters reduce their aquatic space. This makes the wildlife more conspicuous to Everglades visitors (and makes for some great photos).
