After a nice warm Thanksgiving with temperatures around 80, the first week of December begins with a cold front and temperatures in the lower 60’s. The 60’s might not seem bad if you’re some where up north but to me it seems pretty cold. Just last week I was eating my turkey dinner on the lanai by the pool.
Winter in Ocala, is a series of cold fronts with a warm up until the next front comes along. Sometimes the cold fronts are close together and other times weeks apart. December in Ocala has an average high of 72 and a low of 47. See my Ocala weather page, on my web site, for all the monthly average temperatures and precipitation here in Ocala.
The National Weather Service out of Jacksonville, which covers the Ocala area, is predicting a warmer than normal winter. Apparently an El Nina out in the Pacific will give the Ocala area a warmer and dryer than normal winter this year.
Once again, despite predictions, Florida escaped without a major hurricane. If you’re concerned about hurricanes, Ocala is one of the safest places in the state of Florida.
If you’re sick of winter up north, email me, call me or use my Dream Home Finder. Ocala real estate prices are the lowest in Florida!
