Humidity is the worst! Guess I should have planned a trip to WDW instead; we went this time a few year ago and the weather was perfect. Go figure!

I think the weather network was calling for humidity in the 30-40% range, so hopefully it won't be higher than that!

This makes me sad. I don't do heat very well.

Oh well!

It will all be good.

This news is...not happy-making for me. Sure, I'm quite a bit lighter than I was the last times I had to deal with high heat, but still. Dang.

We will be there starting the 2nd of Oct for 6 days, looks and sounds like it will be a warm one!. I think i will take the DL heat over the WDW heat. W where In WDW at about the same time last year, and wow the humidity just kicks the juice right out of you, but i learn (from going to WDW yearly) water,water and more water. Pace your self after all your on vacation!, but not pushing your self is a very big key!. For some reason I am going to bring sun tan lotion, in Florida i never burn, but from what I remember, the sun in SC is more intense!

Well, at least I guess I don't have to worry that my favorite sweater has seen better days, I am not going to need it.

I am just hoping they are wrong and cools down.

woah! philiplc Im not sure what weather forecast you were looking at but its definitely not that now...its pretty close to what twinkletink is saying..but it will get mid 90's for sure...unfortunately the humidity is what is going to make it so much hotter..

well right now, as we speak (its almost 10:30pm) its like mid 60s...and the lowest its supposed to get is a few degrees cooler...so not much...

one thing to be aware of...i guarantee that forecast will change again before you come...I suggest not to pay attention to what it says until 2 to 3 days out..our weather is so wacky that it could be 90ºs one day and 75 the next...

30 to 40% is not a good thing when you are used to having less than 10% on average...that percentage will make 92 feel closer to 94 and if its 95 it will feel closer to 98

We're going to be there from Oct. 5-8, and I have been so worried about the heat... But that puts it into perspective for me. With 30-40% humidity, we would all shrivel up and crack here. We only hit ranges like that with freakish cold fronts sometimes. Usually it's at least 80%. Mid-80's and only 30% humidity would be an awesome change from our weather this time of year -- I'll take it!!

current forecast is for heat wave sunday through wednesday, then cooling down quickly.

right now oct 5-8 looks GREAT, dropping into the 70s. accuweather even says periods of rain sunday the 7th.

Oh thank goodness! I know the 5 thru 8 is going to be super crowded and didn't want to have to deal with extreme heat as well...I'm pregnant and heat intolerant right now and DH has always been heat intolerant. I can do mid 80s but high 90s would be too much.

I thought I'd translate the temps to metric since I only speak Canadian and the it gave me a forecast of 39 for both Monday and Tuesday! For comparison, we consider anything above 30 to be a heat wave and the hottest temperature EVER recorded in Vancouver was 33.8! I can't even get my head around 39! It's starting to scare me a bit.

These are usually around $3 at Walmart this time of year. They probably sell them in the parks for 4-5 times that. They can make a big difference.

This mini model might be interesting.
