In terms of temperatures I've tried to avoid turning on my heat but it is raw outside. Despite the rain in parts of the south temperatures still climb into the upper 60s low 70s. If you want warmth Florida or the deserts of Arizona/California are the place to go. In the Midwest/Plains it is seasonable if not slightly below average.
