The climate of Sanibel and Captiva (Florida - United States of America)
The islands of Sanibel and Captiva are located off the coast of Fort Myers on the Gulf Coast which is the famous Florida west coast with its beautiful white sandy beaches and calm waters. The most important attraction of these islands are their beaches where you can find stunningly beautiful sea shells. Because of this the islands are home to many bird species. In the waters surrounding Sanibel you can spot dolphins in their natural habitat.
The climate of Sanibel and Captiva often causes the skies to be very beautiful. Ideal for taking pictures of the white beaches with lusciously green vegetation along its sides. Deep blue skies with bright clouds often cause an amazing contrast. During the winter precipitation figures are lowest and chances of bright blue skies highest. When the summer starts chances of cloudy skies and heavy rainfall or thunderstorms increase. However, because of its location in the sunniest side of Florida chances of these phenomena are smaller than in the southeastern part of the state where you can find cities such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Chances of depressions reaching the seaside resorts and islands along the Gulf Coast are small.
