    There remains very little rain in the forecast for the next week or so (apart from a "40% chance" of thunderstorms on Thursday), so it should still be good for all concerned, with temps easing off a bit from the recent highs of 90/91 to be more in the 84-88 range (i.e. very nice indeed). The UV index remains high, though, so SPF50 all round!!!

    We would normally expect around 3.5ins of rain in May and have had just over an inch so far (with ALL of that arriving in just 2 days at the start of the month), so we stand to be looking at a dry month overall at the moment, but it only takes another couple of wet days (not in the offing just now) to change things round.

    OK, so now the forecast has changed to a "100% chance" of a thunderstorm from 2-3pm this afternoon, despite the general cooldown (only mid-80s yesterday) but an increase in humidity. The forecast for tomorrow also calls for a "100%" chance of rain and thundery weather, with things then cooling down to around 80F and a "0% chance" of rain for the following 8 days (slowly warming back up again into the low 90s).

    Once temps pretty much stick in the 90s, we can say summer has definitely arrived but, at the moment, we are still in that 'in-between' stage from spring to summer with just enough cooler, dryer weather to keep people comfortable in the parks.

    I can put up with a couple of "iffy days" if it will improve after for the rest of the holiday...

    Well, Weds and Thurs were certainly iffy, but Orlando mostly avoided the heavy rain and thunderstorms that hit further north and along the coast (and caused a number of flights from further north to divert to Orlando, causing more problems for the airport as the UK flights tried to arrive yesterday evening!). We did have several heavy showers and some thunder, but it was mostly short and sharp and gave us barely a quarter of an inch of rain in total. Parts of the Daytona coast and further north had more than 3 inches, though, so it shows once again how localised the weather can be. There was certainly none of the consistent, heavy rain that was in the original forecast for the WDW area, and I doubt people out in the parks were inconvenienced for more than half an hour at a time, maybe 3-4 times.

    The temperature has also dropped sharply in the wake of the storm front moving through, with this morning's temp struggling to top 70F right now (that's almost 20 degrees less than a few days ago). The new 10-day forecast shows things staying in the low 80s for a few days and then increasing sharply to around 94/95 later next week, which could well mark the beginning of summer, although there is absolutely zero rain in the forecast right now, which is not at all summer-like. To use my favourite weather phrase, we will see...!

    It's' been the perfect park touring temperature today. Up until now, we've been melting by midday. We were at Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends this morning. Matt and I left after lunch, but Georgina, Wai and the boys are planning on staying all day. That would have been inconceivable a couple of days ago.

    It was lovely in Epcot today, normally we always joke that they have underfloor heating but it was perfect park weather...

    Definitely perfect park weather just now. The cold front that went through on Thursday has cleared out any trace of humidity and the air is just dry and warm. Actually slightly unusual for May when we should be getting the first blasts of summer. It WILL warm up in the next few days but, right now, it is the ideal time to be here.

    It continues to warm up, but only slowly so far this week. There has been no dramatic hike in temperature (from a low of 76 after the last cold front went through to 90F today) but it is steadily getting hotter, hence people are probably still enjoying things in the parks (albeit with a bit of sunbrun!). It has remained completely dry and with very little humidity, hence it is a bit unusual for this time of year. But, after finally hitting 90 today - it's been low 80s for most of the week - it is supposed to get seriously warm at the weekend, with a forecast for 98 (gasp!) on Saturday/Sunday. Surprisingly, there is still very little rain in the prediction for the next 10 days, just a "30% chance" on Sun and Mon, so that is also a bit unusual. We have had barely 1.5ins of rain this month (and virtually all of that fell on May 2/3, with a bit more on 14/15), and we would normally expect 3.5ins, so we need to keep the sprinklers out for our lawns!!
