Can you explain the type of rain Florida gets in January…. are we talking downpours that can last the entire day (thereby ruining a day trip to disney world) or a 10 minute shower that will pass?
I am planning on visiting Florida and not sure how rain will play a role…..
Any thoughts are appreciated

January is not really considered the rainy season in Florida. I’m in South Florida, near Miami, and I’m getting married in February. Jan/Feb is the most beautiful time of year here, and in Orlando near Disney. And if it does rain, it’ll only be for a few minutes and then clear up. I wouldn’t be worried at all.
If you were coming in April-August, I’d be telling you to pack the rain gear.

OMGMrsW2B: Thank you! Does the same apply for the rest of Florida- say Tampa?

californiabride2013: It barely rains in Florida in January. I live in Tampa, so pretty close to Orlando, and it literally will not rain for weeks during that time of the year. Even now in November, I can’t remember the last time it rained, maybe a couple weeks ago? During the summer it will downpour for like 15 mins and then be sunny again. It’s very rare for it to rain for hours on end here. In January especially, you’re pretty safe as far as rain goes, if it does rain, it’s usually a shower and not an all day thing.

I live in Florida and unfortunately that’s the problem with our rain you just have no idea, normally January isn’t a really considered rainy season but neither is October for the most part compared to summer and at the beginning of the month we had almost two weeks of solid rain out of nowhere.

californiabride2013: I live about an hour south of Tampa and I have to say that Jan/Feb is a really great time to come visit! Unlike the summer when it rains every day, the cooler months get less rain. Your chances of coming and having a beautiful sunny day are pretty great!
