Universal Orlando – Orlando's Weather

Orlando’s average annual temperature is a lovely 72.4 degrees. But as already noted, averages are deceptive. Here are the 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 October might be 2.4 inches over the course of many years, in 2011 there were 7.4 inches of rain that month, with over 6 inches falling in one day alone. In June 2005, Orlando International Airport recorded 16.74 inches of rain, over twice the historic average. The same holds for temperatures, especially in the winter months. January 1996, 2001, and 2010 saw lows dip into the twenties.

Orlando's weather is 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 too much. Also, June through September is hurricane season, with late August and early September the most likely time for severe weather.
