ORLANDO, Fla. – Although Central Florida doesn’t experience the typical seasons of winter, spring, summer and fall, we do have slight changes throughout the year.

The most noticeable two seasons Florida sees is the switch over between wet and dry season. On average, we transition into the dry season by mid-October and then back to wet season by late May.

Along with these obvious changes in our weather pattern, there is another small season that many Floridians look forward to after a long hot summer. And that is the cold and colder seasons.

The criteria between the cold and colder seasons are dependent on the overnight lows. When the cool season begins, our chances for nighttime lows dip below 60 degrees. The next tier is the “colder” season when overnight lows dip below 50 degrees.
