Does a rusty undercarraige get better with time?

(2005 Nissan Altima)
in Saint Johns, FL on December 09, 2012
I have a 2005 Nissan Altima that has been through 7 winters. The undercarriage has a lot of rust, which has resulted in repair bills this year. Will the rust continue to get worse, since I now have the car in a warm weather state, or will it go into remission?

Rusty undercarriages will either get worse or stay the same...it is impossible to improve on its own...isn't Florida a humid state? Humidity causes rust so even while warm it is still not dry.
