I would imagine the shops have done a VERY good trade in gloves, hats and scarves this week as very few people will have arrived prepared for this prolonged chill.

    We ARE supposed to get back into the low 70sF (21/22C) in a few days' time, but there might also be some rain around, and then things look like dropping back into the low 50s once again. That would be almost 20 degrees below average for this time of year and puts us on track for the coldest winter in 28 years. Anyone packing for the next week or so - pack warm clothes, and forget the swimsuit!
    You will run out of warm clothes soon at this rate no doubt the flip flops are sulking in the cupboard

    Flip-flops, shorts and T-shirts. They've all been neglected for more than a week now. Unheard of!

    Now, we are back on an even keel again, with the temps slowly warming up in the last 4 days, getting all the way back to 83F (28C), which is a LOT higher than the forecast 4 days ago! We have also had some distinctly cloudy, overcast and wet weather, both last night and this afternoon (albeit the forecast for thunderstorms amounted to one short, sharp shower - lasting exactly 6 minutes!).

    In theory, we will now drop back into the 50sF (c.12C) and get as cold as 40F (4.4C) at night again. We HAVE topped an inch of rain this month, though, and need only 1.5ins to reach our average for Jan. The temperature is just all over the shop, though.

    That is a big difference in temperature, hard for tourists to know what to pack....
    Our friends flew out to the Cayos in Cuba on Wednesday and beforehand she was stressing about what to pack as she had heard it was cold even there. They normally go later in the year where it isn't an issue.

    Yes, that is a significant issue this month. We have friends who were here from Jan 1 and totally flummoxed by the weather - had to go out and buy sweaters, etc! This is the most erratic month for weather I have known in the last 20 years, but it does underline the need to pack for a wide variety of possibilities at this time of year. Even we can't take the warmth totally for granted in winter. The trick is to dress in layers, and DO make sure you bring a decent coat or several sweaters with you (and, ideally, gloves). There hasn't been a lot of rain but staying warm outside has been crucial. If you are warm enough, it's still possible to enjoy the parks to the full (albeit, the water parks have been closed for much of the month!!).

    So I assume late August early September, is hot, very humid with the chance of thunderstorms with crowd levels dropping off from earlier in the summer as the US schools have returned?
    Might be our best time to go holiday period wise, but pretty unbearable heat to contend with.
    I suppose also after the terrible events of last year it is hurricane season too.

    That would certainly be our experience.

    Our most recent trip in September was hot, sunny and quite a lot of rain, but not unpleasantly so. The hurricane we got was in October!!

    Certainly Aug-Sept is just about peak season for humidity, with temps typically well into the 90sF (and around 94F/34C on average). The hurricanes haven't been much of a menace in recent years (Matthew in October 2016 was a minor disturbance, Irma last September was seriously bad news, but it was the first major storm to impact central Florida since 2004. usually, September isn't a bad month to be here, especially for low crowds, but you do need to be ready for the humidity.
