Early March temperatures (sunbathing)

We will be in Ft. Lauderdale for 4 nights the second week of March. I looked at the average temp and its around 70. Given the breeze off the ocean (looking to stay close) is this to cold for sunbathing, swimming, etc.? I know its a crazy question but living in the north we don't sunbath unless its close to 80 or atleast I don't.

So far it's been a very warm Winter ... in fact my plants think it is already Spring as they're flowering. If it keeps up like this March may very well be warm enough to swim. Certainly if it is sunny it should be good sunbathing weather.

March is often a fickle month down here. A couple years ago I remember it was in the 60s in early March, last year it was in the high 70s/low 80s. As AhHah stated, this year has been a very warm winter, but who knows what will happen a month from now. However, usually by late morning the chances that its a bit warmer are pretty good. Even if the temperature is 75F, if you add the humidity it should be close to 80 or so.

In sheltered spots it will be warm enough for sun even if it is in the 60's/70's. you just need to keep out of any wind.

I remember we used to climb on the roof of the sorority house in Feb (it was a black roof in NC lol) and sunbathe on sunny days when the temps were lower than that ;-).
