Holiday in october

I'm thinking of a holiday to Miami and the keys in early October and knowing its still hurricane season is it sensible to still visit? Ill have about 10 days in total there, is the weather generally ok if there isn't a hurricane? It would it be more sensible to go to the west coast at this time of year?

Temperature wise it is definitely okay to visit ... will be hot and might be still a little humid. As far as hurricanes though, it is way too far off to even guess for either East coast or West coast.

I agree with Ahhah, no way to predict, however I would pick whichever place you want to visit, then have a backup plan in case there is a storm. Make sure you have hotel reservations than can be cancelled otherwise you could get stuck paying for something you can't use. We have been very fortunate for several years and have not had any hurricanes hit Florida recently. And storms can easily hit the gulf side of the state as well as the Keys. We used to vacation in the keys every September and only had 1 year that it rained several days but it was not due to a hurricane, it was just tropical weather.
