Defined by its warm and humid subtropical climate created by its low elevation and close proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, Orlando experiences only two major seasons every year. The first season lasts from May until October and consists of warm and sometimes rainy weather; temperatures rarely fall below 70°F, with daytime highs averaging in the 90s. The annual precipitation in Orlando is 50.1 inches.

The second season stretches from November to April, bringing more moderate temperatures and drier weather. During this season, there is a decrease in humidity, as well as temperature. Average lows are around 50°F, although temperatures do drop below freezing every once in a while; average highs consistently remain in the 70s.

Situated just 40 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean and 60 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, Orlando is somewhat at risk to hurricanes. However, since the city is 100 feet above sea level, typical effects of these tropical storms, such as storm surge, are not of concern. In fact, most storms weaken considerably before arriving in Orlando. Despite the potential for hurricanes, visitors are attracted to this paradise for its mild winters and over 300 days of sunshine.
