The average summer temperatures in Tampa Bay are around 100°.
The relative humidity is as high as it can be.
There isn’t a single day when the temperatures are comfortable. Even when it is raining with lots of thunder and lightning, it is still 80 or 90 degrees outside. I took my kids to the Clearwater Beach area and we rented a hotel room for a couple of days. I wanted to get out of Tampa Bay and enjoy the beach. I didn’t really want to take the kids with me, but I couldn’t convince my husband to keep them and go to work. The kids and I found a very nice hotel room. The first day things were absolutely perfect. We spent some time on the beach and we had a nice dinner at a cafe close to the hotel. We walked everywhere and didn’t have to worry about the crime. Tampa Bay can be filled with crime and activity, but the Clearwater Beach area where we stayed was relatively quiet. On the second day of our getaway, the kids and I woke up to a very warm and humid atmosphere. I tried to adjust the temperatures with the thermostat, but the AC unit wasn’t working much at all. I contacted the front desk, because we were staying there for two more days. A maintenance technician came to service the AC unit. It was low on refrigerant. After the maintenance technician filled the AC unit with the proper refrigerant, cold air started coming out of the vents again. The rest of our trip was just as delightful as the beginning.
