    Yes, that seems like a LONG time ago I don't think you could pay us to move back to that climate now! But the colder weather is definitely closing in on us. And, by colder, we mean back into the 70s instead of the mid-upper 80s. Over on the coast, Melbourne is reported to be at 88F today, which beats their previous record of 87, but things are due to cool down a touch tomorrow with a cold front coming through in the afternoon, and then cooler still on the 14th/15th, when we could drop into the 60s for a day or so. That will mean it is REALLY cold up north (i.e. sub-zero). Ugh.

    Well, the 'colder' weather lasted all of about 6 hours (!) on Saturday, and then quickly galloped back up to the mid-80sF (29C), with a good degree of humidity, too. Definitely more like September than October, and it has even spawned a few showers as well (albeit we need the rain). They are still forecasting that things will take a more marked downturn in a couple of days (possibly down into the 60s during the day), and then, as things rebound on the Florida winter temperature roller-coaster, we shouldn't see anything above 80F (26.5C) against until late March. But, with today's (Tues) temp likely to be again flirting with the record books at 88F (31C), we can't be sure until it actually happens. In theory, we ought to be around 77/78F (25C) at this time of year, dropping to 74/23 for the beginning of December.

    Roll on the cool weather...!

    OK, it is cool-down time (again) and this morning definitely has more of the feel of permanence about it. Realistically, we have been overdue for some colder weather this month, and the predicted cold front did move in overnight, dropping us down into the very low 60sF (16C) and forecasting it to go even lower tonight. That should then see the temp recovering to significantly below the highs we have been experiencing in the past week (up to 88F/31C). We even got some (light) rain, which is always welcome at this time of year. Following this, the forecast is for things to be no higher than 78/25.5 and generally around 75/24. There is zero rain in the 10-day forecast, too.

    It feels good...!

    And now, it is winter Following the cold front, we have had some seriously chilly weather move in, albeit with bright blue skies and plenty of sun. That said, temps have dipped into the high 40sF (9C) at night and barely struggled back to 67F (19C) yesterday. This morning we are barely at 59/15 and have a forecast high of just 74/23 (which isn't terrible but is definitely cool when we were at 87/30 just 3 days ago!

    Also, just past the half-way mark in the month, we have had just 1 inch of rain, with virtually nothing in sight (when the usual Nov average is almost 2.5ins). We could be back to 80/ (or even a little higher) in the next 2-3 days, though, which would be indicative that winter's presence is still pretty ephemeral! All in all, while it isn't ideal water park weather, it really is a lovely time to be here, especially with park crowds a bit lower than we have seen recently.

    Nice and cool to walk around the parks. Been mild here but supposed to be getting colder next week.
    I saw they are still having a lot of snow in upstate New York.

    Yes, there is a fair bit of snow around 'up north,' as we like to say! Very happy for it to stay there, too

    I bet....
    A friends daughter is heading to Syracuse to see friends for Thanksgiving, think she might see some snow!

    Well, if she does, you can tell her we've had to put the A/C back on today! That's really taking liberties in late November

    And our trend of steady warming has continued through the past 5 days, reaching a whopping 84F (28.8C) this afternoon, which is insane for late November (that's still 2 degrees off the record, set in 1992, mind you, but it's plenty warm for us!). We could be up in the 80s for the next 2 days, too, but then there is supposed to be a major cold front coming through that will drop things back into the 60s (although they were seriously wrong about the last one!). There's been zero rain now for 8 straight days, and it could easily be 11 before we get anything else (with the possibility of a thunderstorm in the offing ahead of the cold front). So far this month, we've had exactly 1.15ins of rain, less than half what we'd expect for this month, so we're already starting to go into another dry spell before the dryest part of the year!

    Not a bad time to be here as a visitor, though...

    And, right on cue, our second major cold front has brought cold and misery to Central Florida, with temperatures plunging to - wait it - 51F (10C) *gasp!* Even at noon today, it has recovered to only 59F (15C), which means we are still shivering in our thermal underwear and six sweaters.

    For visitors from the UK, of course, this means they are all out trying to get a sun-tan as there isn't a cloud to be seen and it is truly perfect in and around the parks (if you're staying on the move). We did get some rain last night, too (all of a 10th of an inch!), but we are now looking at another very spell over the next week or so, with temps pushing back up into the high 70sF (C). Accuweather is even predicting a mini heatwave for early December, with temps as high as 87F (C), which would equal the all-time record set in 1978 and '82. In fact, the whole first half of next month could well be distinctly above average, and it may also be late Dec before we see any real rainfall. Phew!
