What is the Weather Like in Marco Island?

Planning a visit to Marco Island? Wonderful! Now you just need to decide when you want to visit so that you can start looking at Marco Island rentals. A big part of your decision will depend upon the weather. You’re sure to have beautiful conditions all year long, but Marco Island does definitely experience unique seasons.

Here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect for Marco Island weather.

Overview of Marco Island Weather

Marco Island weather, in general, is about what you’d expect from any Florida vacation destination. The summer is the hottest month, while the winter is much cooler, though still quite warm compared to what much of the rest of the United States experiences. Additionally, you can rest assured that winter is the dry season and doesn’t bring too much precipitation, whereas, in the summertime, you’re very likely to run into an afternoon shower that leads to a cooler evening.


Marco Island in the spring starts with temperatures in the low 70s or so for March and April, but as the end of May approaches, highs can get closer to 90. Low temperatures remain cool, typically in the 60s. It’s not common to see much rain until summer starts approaching.

During the summer in Marco Island, expect high temperatures in the high 80s or even 90s, and for lows, you’ll still stay in the 70s. This is definitely the busy season and is ideal for those wanting to swim at the beach or participate in watersports. The hot weather is reduced a little thanks to the afternoon showers; each day, there’s about a 70% chance of rain at the height of summer.

For the fall in Marco Island, temperatures start to drop, and the season ends with high temperatures around 80. Lows stay in the 70s or even 60s as winter starts to come. The rain chance remains high in September and October, but by November, it’s reduced dramatically.

Finally, Marco Island in the winter experiences the coolest temperatures of the year, with highs in the 70s and lows in the mid-50s. As we mentioned, this is the dry season, so if you’re visiting from December to February, you won’t have to worry about rain. It’s the perfect destination for snowbirds!

What to Bring

No matter which season you choose to visit Marco Island, you can always get away with packing shorts, t-shirts, and flip flops, as well as some sturdier shoes for walking. You’ll also want your electronics and, of course, their chargers! 

Other than that, it will depend on the season. A light jacket may come in handy in summer for those rain showers or in the winter for the cooler mornings and evenings. For warmer weather, bring your beach gear, and in the colder months, pack a long pair of pants or two. The good news is that, if there’s anything you happen to forget, it’s easy to find a local shop that will have everything you might need.
