During summer months, high temperatures can reach into the 90s. During the coldest months of winter, the lows can dip below 30 degrees, but average temps are well above freezing. Tropical storms and hurricanes present a seasonal risk from August to the end of September, though they rarely present more than a temporary inconvenience.
