Come on down!
Climatologically, a sample of ten years typically will give you a good inidication of normal conditions, but not a reliable indication of likely extremes. It's extremely naive to say that something won't happen just because it has not happened in the past decade. As a college student (1975-1979), I witnessed several aberrant weather patterns that brought abnormally cold weather to Miami.

I looked up the record low temperatures for November in Florida. Here's the list (Temperature- Lowest of Record , Deg F for complete listing by month).

APALACHICOLA, FL - 24
DAYTONA BEACH, FL - 27
FORT MYERS, FL - 34
GAINESVILLE, FL - 25
JACKSONVILLE, FL - 21
KEY WEST, FL - 49
MIAMI, FL - 39
ORLANDO, FL - 29
PENSACOLA, FL - 25
TALLAHASSEE, FL - 13
TAMPA, FL - 23
VERO BEACH, FL - 38
WEST PALM BEACH, FL - 36

Temperatures this low are unusual, to be sure, but it never hurts to be prepared.

Norm.
