Weather Overview

Most people travel to St. Pete Beach in the summer, and for good reasons. The kids are out of school, you can probably afford to take some time off of work, and the weather is the warmest. From June through August, expect high temperatures in the 80s or even 90s and low temperatures in the 70s or 80s. You’re likely to experience some rain showers, but they’ll likely come in the afternoon as a welcome break from the high heat.

If you visit in the fall, the weather in St. Pete Beach is much more bearable. In September, high temperatures may still be in the 80s, but by October and November, they fall into the 70s. Likewise, low temps can range throughout the 60s and 70s depending on the exact month. Similarly, the chance of precipitation is high in September, but by November, it’s down to about 15% on any given day. 

Visiting St. Pete Beach in the winter is a welcome escape from the colder weather that plagues the rest of the country. In December, January, and February, St. Pete Beach experiences high temperatures in the 60s and 70s and lows in the 50s. While you might have some chilly weather in the morning and evening, it’s still pleasant during the daytime. Best of all, the chance of precipitation is minimal.

Finally, the temperatures in spring change much the way they do in the fall. In March and April, temperatures will peak in the 70s and dip into the 60s, but by May, highs in the 80s and lows in the 70s are typical. On the same note, March and April hold smaller chances of precipitation, but in May, rain chances could be as high as 40% on any given day.

What to Pack 

So, what do you need to pack when you come to St. Pete Beach? No matter which season you arrive, you can always plan for relatively warm weather. It’s worth it to bring shorts, short-sleeved shirts, and comfortable walking shoes. You may also want to pack a light jacket; it can keep you dry in a summer shower or keep you warm on the chilly winter evenings. You can plan for time on the beach in the summer by bringing beach equipment, hats, sunscreen, and sunglasses. In the winter, be sure to bring a long pair of pants and a long-sleeved shirt in case you encounter a particularly cold day.
