Big Cypress, Florida


It is located in the northern part of the Big Cypress-Miccosukee Reservation. I am not certain what the population of Big Cypress is but using google earth i counted around 200 housing units. If the settlement has 200 or more housing units the population should be between 600 and 800. In the immediate surrounding region are numerous farms. I have no idea what the racial data for Big Cypress is but Indians make up the majority of the population of Big Cypress. The climate of that region of Florida is probably identical to that of the Big Cypress weather station located some 20 miles to the west.



The south Florida winters are getting colder as a result of the draining of south Florida's marshes and swamps. North Florida's marshes and swamps have nearly been eliminated. We can expect the winter climate of south Florida to cool off a few more degrees within the next 5 to 6 decades. Between 1910 and 1940, south Florida locations like Everglades City and Homestead, had January maximum high temperatures of 78 degrees. Homestead has a January maximum high of 75 now. Since Homestead and, of course, Everglades City are located closer to the oceans, it indicates the further inland one goes the high temperatures are warmer by a few degrees.



The current average January maximum high at the Big Cypress weather station is 78 degrees. It even currently averages 78 degrees at the Royal Palm Ranger Station in January. Royal Palm Ranger Station is located 10 miles south west of Homestead but it is further inland than Homestead. That is an indication that locations in south Florida like Big Cypress and Royal Palm Ranger Station, should have average January maximum high temperatures of 80 degrees or warmer. It is no longer tropical in south Florida. Within the next 50 to 100 years, the average January highs at Big Cypress, Royal Palm, and the rest of the interior of south Florida, will be around 74 or 75. That's if they continue to drain south Florida's marshes and swamps. Below are several links to pictures of Big Cypress, Big Cypress Indian Reservation.
