We had a BEAUTIFUL week in Disney World!
If you’re headed to Disney World soon, then you might be hoping for more of the same when it comes to the weather in Disney World next week. Well, we want to make sure you’re ready for whatever the Florida skies might throw at you. So, we’re here with a weather update!
According to The Weather Channel, things are getting HOT, HOT, HOT this week.
Last week was the first that gave us a nice reprieve from the rain. Will we still have sunny days for days this week? Let’s take a look!
Monday, May 3rd will start the week with pretty toasty temperatures — and you better get used to it! That day is going to max out at a 94-degree high and we’ll see 73 degrees at night.
You’ll notice the temperatures this week are pretty stable again, although they are a little warmer this week. Don’t expect to see too many differences from day to day!
The next day, May 4th brings us a VERY similar forecast with a high of 96 degrees during the day and keeping that low down at a comfy and warm 75 degrees.
You also might notice that the chance of rain is pretty low. Over the week, there’s a little more moisture in the forecast but nothing like we saw a few weeks ago.
On Wednesday, May 5th, we’re going to see temps that are pretty similar to the day before, don’t worry though, it’s going to cool down just a little bit later in the week. Your low is gonna keep hanging out in the mid-70s for a comfy evening.
Note that it looks like we’re going to see some scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Make sure you have a rain layer prepped so that you can stay dry.
For Thursday, May 6th, we’re seeing a day with a little bit of a drop in the temps in the high-80s and a beautiful evening at 71 degrees.
You’ve got some thunderstorms in the morning here as well. When there are thunderstorms in the forecast, it’s best to be prepared. Sometimes, you might end up getting off without rain — but it’s best to be prepared.
The week continues with still-similar temperatures in the day and another little drop into the high 60s in the nighttime on May 7th.
And voila! That rain chance drops too! Get ready for intervals of clouds and sunshine!
Saturday, May 8th brings us more warm temps up in the high-80s. Note this week has all EXTREME UV Index days. This is similar to last week so you’ll want to make sure you wear PLENTY of sunscreen.
Here, we’ll see an 87-degree high and a 69-degree low.
And we’ll wrap up our week on May 9th with still warm temperatures and a beautiful sunny day.
This week might not be quite as perfect as last week, but it’s just important that you focus on that sun protection!
Overview of the Week
Here is a full overview of the week according to The Weather Channel. Temperatures are projected to hang out in about the same place for the whole week again. We’re looking at a range of 80s to 90s highs and 60s to 70s lows.
Other websites like Click Orlando News 6…
…and WESH 2 News have similar forecasts throughout the week.
Keep in mind that the weather in Florida is subject to change at ANY moment so keep an eye on that forecast. We recommend that you check regularly as you get closer to your trip and then check every day DURING your trip too.
Tips for Weathering the Weather!
So, what are our best tips for packing when it comes to this week’s forecast?
Protect yourself from the sun and heat!
Alright, there’s SUN and HEAT to deal with this week. Florida is known for hot and humid days in the late spring and the forecast is showing some intense UV levels. It kinda feels like we’re saying “Bye!” to spring and “Hi!” to summer.
Keep in mind that UV levels aren’t just uncomfortable but they can also be harmful. It will be very important to make sure you wear sunglasses or a cap to protect your eyes and to snag sunscreen so that you don’t get any painful burns.
Be prepared for anything!
Alright, the other thing is that you shouldn’t feel safe from rain even if it isn’t in the forecast on any given day. You’ll need to bring a poncho or rain jacket for your trip in general with those storms on the forecast — but think twice before you leave it in your hotel room.
Rain can crop up at ANY. TIME. in Orlando and it can be SO uncomfy to be soaking wet while you’re waiting for Space Mountain (or any other ride). Better to be safe than sorry by toting along a poncho when you head into the parks!
