Beyond Tampa and into Florida
Tampa has an average of 246 days of sunshine each year. It’s no surprise Florida’s nickname is the Sunshine State.
What should I wear?
The weather in Tampa can vary. Summer months are bright and hot with highs around 32°C. Autumn tends to be warm with calm breezes, while winter is irregular with highs near 21°C. Spring brings rain; weather is mild with highs around 25°C. Dress is usually casual for USF students. Make sure you have enough clothes to keep you warm for the first month or so of classes, and you can buy anything else you need after you arrive.
