That's right a week or so back I remember they had 3 days of rain, now nothing.

I would agree with others. Far out you can look at national sites but when you start getting close enough switch over to local coverage. They spend much more time on just focussing on MCO weather and it seems to be more accurate. But realize that 50% of the time they may be wrong.

Pack in layers. Wake up and put on the weather, go outside, see how it feels, and dress accordingly for that day with the ability to add or remove layers 10-15 degrees either way.

If you pack for layers, you will not need a heavy coat and a few pairs of shorts won't make or break your packing strategy.

Moltiva, I use zip 32830 or lake buena vista. But if you use orlando you will probably get the correct temps, maybe a slightly different rain forecast.

I have checked all the weather sites and the local stations and they are now pretty much on the same page. Hot with no rain. We are going on a mimi trip for 3 days, so when I saw rain for 2 out of 3 days I panicked.

As a local, I don't use either Accuweather or weatherchannel.com - I don't find them to be accurate enough. I use the local affiliates WFTV and WOFL most of the time. WFTV only does a five day forecast, and WOFL does a seven, but even so, they are really only accurate out maybe two or three days most of the time. Both of them do forecasts every ten minutes on weekday mornings, so it's easy to get a quick forecast before heading out to the parks as well.

I agree that local Tv stations tend to be the best. But for me, I think www.intellicast.com is the best national site.

I'm a major dork. I start tracking accuweather at about 15 days out and I average out the changes day to day. So far in my 20 trips it has worked out well. Right now i'm looking at temps in the mid 70's during the day and mid 50's at night. Still beats the 30 degree weather at home!

Cinderella: I agree with you plus I have a friend who lives in Celebration and will tell me what I need to know. Last December we enjoyed temps that were summer-like...really perfect. For our upcoming trip, he said a light jacket for evening would be sufficient. No matter what, it's ALOT warmer than home and we get to swim everyday
