Hurricanes

Although hurricanes are common in Florida, they do have a tendency to weaken before they reach Orlando because of its distance from the sea. Hurricane season lasts from 1st June to 30th November, peaking in August and September.

All theme parks and other attractions in Orlando take storms seriously and will close outdoor attractions when lightning or heavy rain are present in the area. Fortunately advanced warnings are given with hurricanes and their possible paths as soon as they are detected by the National Weather Service.

Back to list

Weather in February

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 7.15am, end of the month 6.50am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 6.05pm, end of the month 6.25pm

February is a good time to go if you want to visit when the weather isn't as humid which also makes it a popular time for golf as well, as you don't have to endure the severe heat experienced later in the year. It is still quite cool in February, but warm enough to swim and enjoy Orlando's water parks.

February has gradually increasing daily high temperatures, with the average maximum daytime temperature generally around 23°C or 74°F, whereas the average minimum temperature drops down to 11°C, or 52°F. Pool heating is advisable in the villas for February.

Average precipitation for February: 3 inches

Back to list

Weather in March

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 6.50am, end of the month 7.17am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 6.25pm, end of the month 7.45pm

Please note the time change on Sunday 10th March 2019, (clocks move forward 1 hour)

In March, things start to warm up as Spring arrives in Orlando. The temperatures are considerably higher than those in February, and the chance of cooler weather is dramatically reduced. The average daytime temperatures in March reach a blissful 26°C, about 78°F.

You can expect about 9 hours of sunshine a day. It is outside of the rainy season, any precipitation tends to clear up quickly.

Average precipitation for March: 3.5in (9cm)

Back to list

Weather in April

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 7.15am, end of the month 6.45am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 7.45pm, end of the month 8.00pm

In April the weather is hot and sunny. The sun is staying out longer and later, and the temperatures are much improved. The average daytime temperatures in April reach a glorious 28°C, about 83°F. If you find it too hot, this is a great time to visit the water parks to cool down.

There are around 10 hours of sunshine per day. The chance of rain is relatively low. April is one of the less humid months as summer approaches.

Average precipitation for April: 2.4in (6.1cm)

Back to list

Weather in May

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 6.45am, end of the month 6.30am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 8.00pm, end of the month 8.15pm

The Orlando weather in May is rather warm and humidity is rising. You will only need to pack light clothes to wear. The average daytime temperatures in May reach a high of 31°C, about 88°F. As summer approaches, this is a great time to visit the water parks for a cool off or take a dip in your private pool whilst relaxing after the theme parks.

There are around 10 hours of sunshine per day. The rainy season generally starts towards the end of May, although this is not always the case. When out and about, be prepared with an umbrella just in case, or ponchos when at the parks.

It is getting warmer in May and humidity is rising. Make sure you keep yourself hydrated at all times by drinking lots of water, particularly if you are spending time queuing up for rides at the parks.

Average precipitation for May: 3.3 inches (8.3cm)

Back to list

Weather in June

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 6.28am, end of the month 6.31am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 8.20pm, end of the month 8.27pm

The weather in June is almost invariably hot and humid, and can get very wet. There are fair chances of rain compared to the preceding months as the rainy season is well underway. An umbrella or waterproof coat is therefore advisable. Many of the theme parks sell plastic ponchos if you want a souvenir and you may also be lucky enough to find these in the villas left from previous guests. The average daytime temperatures reach a high of 33°C, about 91°F.

There are around 11 hours of sunshine a day and humidity is fairly high. Drink lots of water when out and about to avoid getting dehydrated. This is particularly necessary if you’re at the parks as it’s getting busier and you’ll be waiting in queues for longer. Hand-held fans which spray water are a great means of cooling down.

Average precipitation for June: 6.6 inches (17cm)

Back to list

Weather in July

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 6.32am, end of the month 6.47am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 8.27pm, end of the month 8.17pm

The weather in July is hot and humidity can easily be at 95%. Be sure to carry plenty of drinks with you on days out and avoid staying in the fierce sun without a hat for long periods of time. Hand-held fans which spray water are a great means of cooling down too. The average daytime temperatures reach a scorching 33°C. July is still rainy season and can be wet, you are more likely to get rain in a day than not. Most of the rain is received in the form of strong thunderstorms in the afternoon, which pass within an hour.

Average precipitation for July: 7.7 inches (19cm)

Back to list

Weather in August

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 6.47am, end of the month 7.03am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 8.10pm, end of the month 7.48pm

The weather in August in Orlando is characterised by high heat and humidity and rain is very likely. Similar to July, the average daytime temperatures are around 33°C (about 91°F). The temperature doesn't really drop at night either with average minimum temperatures of around 23°C (about 73°F). As it is peak season, the area is busy so parks can get quite crowded with families and it can feel hotter than it actually is.

The average amount of sunshine per day in August is about 9 hours. Humidity will remain at around 95% as in July. Afternoon thunderstorms are therefore very likely, but usually subside within an hour. All indoor attractions will be air conditioned, so for shopaholics you'll be in your element in the malls. Remember when going outside, keep yourself hydrated with plenty of water and protect your skin with sun cream.

Average precipitation for August: 6.7 inches (17.1cm)

Back to list

Weather in September

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 7.04am, end of the month 7.47am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 7.18pm, end of the month 7.12pm

The temperature in September is starting to cool down a bit in Orlando, but it is not that much cooler than in August. The average daytime temperatures are still around 32°C (about 90°F) whereas the average minimum temperatures go down to around 22°C (about 72°F). The sun is still strong, be safe, drink plenty, wear light layers of clothing, a hat and sunglasses, not to mention sun cream with a high SPF.

On average you will see around 9 hours of sunshine per day. The weather is still warm but slightly less humid and more bearable compared to the preceding summer months. There are also fair chances of rain and thunderstorms throughout the month. When out and about, pack a waterproof jacket or poncho instead of an umbrella due to the strong winds that usually accompany the thunderstorms.

Average precipitation for September: 6.2 inches (15.7cm)

Back to list

Weather in October

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 7.18am, end of the month 7.37am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 7.11pm, end of the month 7.41pm

October in Orlando brings a change in climate as autumn arrives. This is a great time of year to visit as the temperature is still warm but humidity lower than in summer months. The average daytime temperature is a bearable 29°C (about 84°F) the average minimum temperatures can creep down to a pleasant 18°C (about 65°F).

On average you will see around 8 hours of sunshine per day during this month. In October there is less chance of getting caught in extreme weather conditions. There is still a possibility of rain but less intense than the rain and thunderstorms throughout the few previous months.

Average precipitation for October: 3.4 inches (8.6cm)

Back to list

Weather in November

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 6.40am, end of the month 7.00am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 5.40pm, end of the month 5.30pm

Please note the time change on Sunday 4th November 2018, (clocks move back 1 hour)

The average minimum temperatures drop down to 14°C (57°F). The humidity drops significantly at this time of year so it's a great time for outdoor activities such as golf and swimming. While there is always the possibility of rain in Florida, the chances of rain are at their lowest in November. Average precipitation: 2.30 inches.

Many people feel that November is one of the best months of the year to visit the theme parks and other Orlando attractions. Pleasant temperatures and low precipitation combined with low crowd levels (except for Thanksgiving week) make for an awesome month to visit Orlando.

Average precipitation for November: 1.89 inches (4.8cm)

Back to list

Weather in December

  • Sunrise: Start of the month 7.00am, end of the month 7.20am
  • Sunset: Start of the month 5.30pm, end of the month 5.40pm

The humidity drops significantly at this time of year so it's a great time for outdoor activities such as golf and swimming although pool heating is advisable in the villas for December. There are slight chances of rain in December, however it comes and goes quickly.

Average precipitation: 2.04 inches
