How is Clearwater weather in Mid-October? Too cold?

I'm thinking of booking a few nights in mid-October but saw some conflicting temperatures. Has anyone gone during this time of year and how is it? Thanks!

Not too cold at all. Will still be in the high 80's, lower 90's during the day. A little less humid than mid-Summer. May start to get a few weak cold fronts during the end of the month, but for the most part, is still Summer weather.

We were there the middle two of October last year and it was scorching (they said on TV that it was a heatwave). It was in the high 80s/low 90s most days. A cold front did come through for a few days and temps were only around 65 degs first thing but it warmed up duing the day. We are arriving in three weeks time so are hoping once again for nice hot weather!

December is a little different. By then we get cold fronts that come through. It's just a hit or miss thing with the fronts. Could be in the 60's during the day, or the low 80's. If a front comes throug, it will cool down for a few days usually, then warm again for a few days, then cool with the next front and so on. Usually a dry month though.

Just to mention, accuweather.com (which is not terribly accurate) shows only upper 70s for highs and 50s for lows in the Tampa Bay area around the 14th and 15th.

Oct 13, 14 15 are supposed to be 85, 84, 81 according to the weather.com 10 day forcast. A Whole lot cooler than last year which was well into the 90's. But comparable to the previous year.

So, daytomes will be pleasant to hot. But not very hot. Nightimes may be cool, but won't be cold.

To far out to tell about Dec this year asit can vary. You can check the averages via the website I mentionned. But don't take temps now to mean anything. In the very cold year last year, OCT was boiling. the prev year when Oct was cool it was a normal winter.

It looks like the air temps this weekend will be 86 for highs and 70 for lows which is perfect. However I'm getting conflicting reports on water temperature. Weather.com implies low to mid 80's, while wtsp.com is reporting 74 degree water temperatures which is a tad and the chilly side. Does anyone know how the water in the gulf feels right now?

Well, this map looks like the water temps are definitely in the low to mid 80s
