Planning outdoor wedding in Islamorada FL in February 2020. Would you say pattern wise it is safer to book Feb. 23 than Feb.15?


Planning a wedding for September 14th of 2019 what is the weather prediction

Walt Disney World weather

Tripped planned to visit Walt Disney in Orlando. July 26-30, 2019. What is the weather prediction?

Weather Disney late July

It will be hot, humid and rainy.

Orlando weather conditions in July

Florida has a very distinct weather pattern. It will be very hot, extremely humid and generally, from about 3 in the afternoon till about 4 in the afternoon we get amazing thunder showers.

It's just our rainy season and it happens every day.
I would suggest that you bring clothing that is breathable like muslin, cotton Etc and make sure it's loose fitting. Also, natural fibers dry quickly in case you do happen to get caught in the rain.

The humidity is what most people are absolutely shocked by. It can be 95 degrees and 98% humidity without a cloud in the sky in Late July here.

Oh... bring sunscreen and take it very seriously. Those of us who grew up in the Florida Sun can generally take it but, I have seen visitors with 3rd degree burns from the sun simply from falling asleep on a raft at a water park. The sun here is extremely intense.

That being said, we hope you have a fabulous time and let me be the first to say Welcome to the Sunshine State!

Global Warming

It snowed in Miami in 1977. Was that due to the weather getting colder? People come to Florida for the weather. There was an article I read several years ago where a scientist (I am not making this up) said that the flood in the Bible was due to global warming? It is an absolute hoax to take our money. They are having blizzards all over the country. The weather goes in cycles that is all this is.

Climate changes

When I was a child (I am old) the heat was not that noticeable to me, now it is. I'm not sure if the actual temperatures are higher but the impact on my body and health is measurable. Back in the day, during the Summer it would rain Every Day about the same time. It has not been doing that in recent years, until now. This year it rained Every Day. This year there were some record highs but I was more able to handle them. This year the humidity has been quite high but even that has not been too hard to handle.
This may be a sign of Global Warming. ...
However, It is my firm belief that Global Warming is caused by Politicians and all that Hot Air.
Stop Politicians from coming here and ruining Florida with all their Hot Air.


I have lived here for 40 years and my first summer in Florida was never this hot. I did not have air conditioning in my apartment then and I was perfectly fine. Today I would not be able to live here without it. The summer is a lot hotter compared to then and Global Warming is not a hoax. It is for real. Although the summers are a lot hotter the winters make up for the heat we feel in the summer. Too bad we have to put up with all the people and cannot enjoy our winters here as snowbirds seem to think it is okay to be on the road while we are trying to get to work in the morning and they are site seeing and driving 20 miles an hour on a highway.


What are you smoking? It's hot in Florida and freezing in NYC? Get out of here. Now if was snowing in Miami or a heat wave hit Alaska, then I would believe that Global Warming existed to the degree that CNN hypes it up but they are merely urban legends. Perhaps you also believe that aliens built the pyramids. I can produce scientists that believe in global warming but those same scientists believe in UFOs. But science isn't faith, it's results from scientific fact finding. All this weather has been empirical since the beginning of time and will remain so whether man is here or not. You shouldn't be surprised to find out that it gets very hot and damp in swampy sub-tropical destinations like Florida.

Awesome reply. I agree

Awesome reply. I agree totally. Global warming is not happening in Florida for sure. I lived here for the past 58 years and it has always been hot here especially during the summer. Not sure what these people are on who thinks it’s warmer now than yeas ago. That’s what subtropical areas in the world are. Hot during summer months. I love it.
