Marco Island is considered Sub-Tropical.  Hurricane season begins in June. The "rainy season" usually starts in July and the thunderstorms  only last an hour or so. Hurricanes spin counter clock-wise in the Northern Hemisphere and clock-wise in the southern hemisphere.

Marco Island has some of the best weather in the US and is a sub-tropical paradise that is unmatched in climate.  Another little known fact is that with the positioning of Marco, most hurricanes miss us.  This is because many hurricanes come toward us from the Atlantic which requires them to pass over land thus weakening them.  Hurricane Andrew was a prime example of this.  Late season storms generally form in the South of Cuba and are the ones that we keep an eye on!
