What's beach like at christmas

looking to spend some time in florida somewhere between 12/23-12/31. School break dictates limited travel so yes we must go when the masses vacation.

If we choose to travel to the Everglades and then spend some time in either Englewood or Nokomis...is it likely we could enjoy some days on the beach getting some sun and relaxing? We are coming from the northeast so we don't need 90 degree days to don a bathing suit. I have access to reasonable airfare and not as worried about hotels/rentals. Just seeking opinions on beach like weather possibilities.

Last few years have been 80's. Gulf water will be around 75 or so. A cold front could change that.

Today the high is 73, tomorrow 63, and 80's by sunday.

Long range forecast is for around 80 the day before you arrive. What it will be like exactly will all depend on the timings of the Cold fronts that week. But highs from he 60s-80s can be expected.

????????

why? Plenty warm enough to be on the beach, and 100 miles south would only be a few degrees different (and much more expensive)??

The best way to get warmer is to leave the SA and head to the carribean?

I teach Yoga almost every morning on Manasota Beach, Englewood Fl. Our Yoga Students love the weather and with an exception of a few really cool mornings, we had beautiful weather. Just today people were basking in the sun. I have to correct on the water temperature it is around 71 now. Once the sun goes down the air goes down to "chilly" 70 degrees F. The beauty is right now that the beach is almost empty because of many people travelling up north for the holiday. The weather could change I can't predict it. But it would still be a wonderful vacation on the beach. You can always join our yoga ;-)
