I remember going to FL last feb leaving PA at a crisp temp of 8 degree's. I remember getting down orlando in the late afternoon and my car was reading 72 degree's. What an unreal feeling. I stayed in orlando for a few days, each morning at about 9:30 it was 45-50 degrees and quite honestly, it was so sunny out, it felt spectacular. Then again, im used to lake effect snow but still, it was great weather for sure. Summer is a whole different thing, but hey..

I think it IS all relative. To illustrate with another example, I remember I worked at a call center where I was commuting to by bus, here in Orlando. When we were all going home, I waited with a Jamaican girl for the bus to come. It was in Winter, but probably only about 62 degrees. I will admit as a Floridian it felt cool, but she was balling up and claimed it was cold . . . . to her. She was used to the temp. staying above 75 degrees, all year long, all day long.

It is supposed to warm up though in the next day or two, but this may be a sign to a cold winter ahead (for us). I do agree though, I get cold the second it gets to about 70 and I feel most comfortable at about 85 to 90 where it is often here in Orlando but not as often December through March.

Yeah, you guys are experiencing some unusually cold weather down there in central Florida today. Highs will struggle to get out of the lower 60s with a north breeze, and tonight you are headed into the lower 40s. Many records are likely to be broken during this event.

This morning it was 38. We get a couple of those throughout the winter, but it warms up during the day.

The high today in Orlando only hit 63F. That is definitely very cold for October considering the average JANUARY high is around 70F. I wonder if this is a sign of things to come later on this winter?

I think so, last year was a mild winter so we are due one. I can see all my dead brown frozen plants that I spent all spring and summer working on and maintaining.......

Orlando hit 43F this morning. This ties the all-time record low for the month of October set back in 1957. Pretty impressive.
