    Reasons you Can't Trust the Weather Forecast, Pt 3,972!

    After insisting we would have an increased chance of rain and thunderstorms in the wake of TS Gordon, the complete opposite has been the case, of course. After the storm lightly brushed us on Monday (Sept 3), dropping less than half an inch of rain, we have been dry for 3 days in a row! We have seen far less cloud than usual and an increasing amount of sun (and heat!). After barely being in the mid-80s at the weekend, we are back up to 91/92F (33C) today, with the prospect for a bit of a scorcher if the cloud stays away.

    Time for that SPF50...!!

    Your forecasts are about as good as ours...in other words not good!
    Pleased for anyone out there at the moment.

    Ironically, as the menacing Hurricane Florence bears down on the Carolinas (and the neighbouring states of Virginia and Georgia), our rain chances are diminishing as much of the moisture is pulled OUT of our upper atmosphere into the orbit of the storm. After 4 or 5 distinctly stormy and grumbly days, today and much of the next week has a much-lowered forecast for rain and the usual daily thunderstorms, with the temp also going back up from the upper 80sF we've had recently to the 92/93F mark (33/34C). It's staying pretty humid, however, which means that the 'real' temp, with the Heat Index built in, is closer to 100F/37-38C. Woof.

    While there is a silver lining for Florida it looks like the Carolinas are going to have a really tough time. I hope the people there stay safe.

    Our thoughts entirely. Having suffered through Irma last year, Floridians know what's in store for the Carolinas and, possibly, Georgia, so we're definitely thinking of them and hoping for a good outcome.

    I know when we were in Florida in Oct 2016 when Matthew breezed up the Atlantic coast, that was scary enough, rather than have the full force roll straight into the shore.

    Yes, that was definitely a small taste of the full fury of one of these big storms (and Matthew did quite a bit of damage along the north-east FL coast). Seeing the HUGE amounts of rain with Florence is also an eye-opener (getting on for 30 inches in some places in little more than 24 hours. Yipe).

    Here in Orlando, while the rain certainly hasn't disappeared (big, big thunderstorm last night, around 8.30), it has definitely warmed up again. It was 96F/36C yesterday and is another real cooker of a day today - 94F with the Heat Index taking things to 101/102. That's pretty seriously warm for mid-September, when we expect things to start to cool off (albeit it takes about a month!) and be around 90/32.

    Our total rainfall for the month to date is around 3ins, and the usual average is 6, so we are pretty typical overall.

    Boy, it is hot, even by typical Florida standards. Both here and down in the Keys, where we've just spent a very enjoyable few days doing some more hotel reviews (more of that soon!), the temperature is nudging up to near record levels for this time of year. It would normally be around 89F, but the daytime temps are actually around 95F (pushing 36C) and with plenty of humidity that is taking the Heat Index to a whopping 104F (40C). Just when things seemed to be cooling off, they have spiked, big-time, and it is really tough to be out and about this week! We are supposed to cool off, a little, by the end of the month but, with night-time temps also barely dropping into the 70s, it is Sweat City for much of the time If we hit 96F, that will equal the hottest ever for Orlando in late Sept.

    Today is officially the first day of autumn, and our weather has suddenly decided its going to change. It's not a big change, of course, but it is noticeable and it is definitely welcome, and it is also quite marked after hitting near record temp levels last week.

    After all the turmoil in the wake of Hurricane Florence, which affected our weather indirectly, everything has now settled down and left us with a distinctly cooler and dryer pattern this week. The last 4 days have seen the temp drop from 95/96 to 'just' 89, and we are barely at 85 in early afternoon today. It is still pretty humid, but in the absence of any serious rain in the past 4 days, things are drying out a little. The evening temp is fast approaching ideal and things are supposed to stay relatively dry for the rest of the month.

    It could just be a great time to be arriving...!
