    That is pretty much par for the course in Jan and Feb, and we're happy to get some 'normal' weather after being WAY above average for much of December and the first half of Jan. The more typical pattern is also now prevailing, with a steady rise from that low, low temperature to 51F/11C, 72/22 and 77/25 in the past 3 days. Then we might see some more really warm weather later this week - possibly as high as 87/30 - before another cold front comes through and drops things back down into the 60s again, and this pattern of climbing up into the low-mid 80s and then dropping back again looks set for the rest of the month.

    Usually, we'd be around 72-74 as we advance through this month, but getting as high as 87 is just a tad unusual (the record is 90, though!). There is very little rain in the forecast, but then Feb is also one of the dryest months of the year (barely 2.4ins expected). 2018 was the warmest Feb on record, with 2019 close behind. Hopefully this year will be a bit different!!

    And we are, indeed, warming up today significantly. It's already 81F/27C by noon, and it feels every bit of it right now. No humidity, but the heat is very noticeable after several weeks of relatively cool weather (and being in long trousers!!).

    Today we're at 87F/30C at 2pm, and likely to be close to a record 89/31.5 for Feb 13. It feels warmer, too, because there's some humidity in the atmosphere, which is very unusual for this month. Not only are we back in shorts, the A/C is going full blast, which we hate at this time of year

    There IS some change in the pattern overnight, possibly as 'low' as 73/2 tomorrow, but we're definitely on a warmer flightpath than normal in overall terms. There is next to no rain in the forecast through to the end of the month, which isn't unusual, but just makes it feel hotter!

    Sigh, I would take this over the rotten weather we are having. Storm Ciara last weekend, Storm Dennis this coming weekend...

    Yep, I'll swap with you as well Simon. I'm working at Harlequin's rugby Saturday.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.

    We sincerely hope so, TF. The country needs it

    Meanwhile, in Floridaland, our temperature pretty much plummeted yesterday as the forecast cold front moved through, with much cloud and occasional rain. From 88F/31C just 2 days ago, we were down at 58/14 last night, so the long trousers are back on!! This is still pretty much par for the course for a Florida winter (albeit 88 is really WAY too high; 78 should be our Feb high), and it should continue for the next few weeks. We're unlikely to see temps down in the 40s any more, though, and there should be more days of 80 and above as we head rapidly towards March.

    PS: Winter Storm Dennis sounds like an absolute monster for the northern UK, esp N. Ireland and Scotland, this weekend. Hope DMRevis and family are keeping their heads down....

    More days of 80 and above? How about more days of nearly 90?! That's right, we hit 88F/31C again yesterday, which ties the record for Feb 19, and that means the A/C is going full blast and I hate it! It has reached 'only' 86/30 today so far, and we are forecast to have another drop back into the 60s, but the trend is definitely up and hot. Haven't needed the long trousers again for a full week, but we'll see where we are tomorrow!

    There IS plenty of sun, though, and I suspect these temps (with a bit of humidity - the Heat Index, or 'real feel' has us at 89/31.5) are probably catching a lot of people out, and there are quite a few red faces/arms/legs on display right now. be warned - sunscreen is ALWAYS necessary in Florida!!

    And boy, when the weather turns here, it turns FAST. Yesterday we were basking in brilliant 86F/30C-degree sunshine and having to get the sunscreen out (or not, in Susan's case!!). This morning, things have plummeted to 50/10 overnight, with clouds, drizzle, a chilly northerly wind and the promise it will actually get colder!! Hopefully, anyone here will already have heeded our regular warnings to pack for all climates in Jan/Feb, and they will not get caught out. It's not going to be a great day in the parks (albeit, it MIGHT keep the crowds down a touch), but it is another salutary reminder how you can't take the sunshine and warmth totally for granted in an Orlando winter. There WILL be some cold weather at some point, and you need to be ready for it

    This looks like the pattern for the next 10 days or so, too (a steady warming up, then sharp drop), so anyone who's coming in the next day or two, be warned!

    PS: Water parks are closed today and tomorrow, not surprisingly!
