Orlando Florida Weather

Orlando’s average annual temperature is a lovely 72.4 degrees. But as we’ve already noted, averages are deceptive. Here are the National Weather Service’s generally cited “average” figures for temperature and rainfall throughout the year:

Use these figures as general guidelines rather than guarantees. While the average monthly rainfall in June might be 7.3 over the course of many years, in June 2005 Orlando International Airport recorded 16.74 inches of rain that month. The same with temperature. January of 2001 saw lows dip into the twenties.

I find Orlando’s weather most predictable in the summer when “hot, humid, in the low nineties, with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms” becomes something of a mantra for the TV weather report. Winter weather tends to be more unpredictable with “killer” freezes a possibility. As to those summer thunderstorms, they tend to be localized and mercifully brief (although occasionally quite intense) and needn’t disrupt your touring schedule. I was once in Orlando for a summer week when it rained somewhere every day but never on me.

Another thing to bear in mind is that June through September is hurricane season, with July and August the most likely months for severe weather.
