We are finally coming up on some people’s favorite holiday: Halloween.

  • Halloween typically marks end of wet, hot season in Florida
  • Mild temperatures expected for Halloween in Orlando area

For kids — and some adults — it's all about the candy; for others, the costumes are the best part. But for most Floridians, it means the end of the wet and hot season.

The dry season officially begins Nov. 1. That's when the weather pattern shifts, and we start getting the cold fronts all the way to Central Florida.

Our normal highs for the end of October are in the low 80s and lows average in the middle 60s. For Halloween specifically, the averages are 82 and 62.

What are we looking at this year? We should see lots of sunshine and highs on Halloween around 75. As we head into the early evening, the temperatures will drop slowly through the 60s — not too terribly hot or cold.

You may just want to bring a light jacket for the walk back home after all that trick-or-treating. Have a safe and very fun Halloween!
