Full Answer

Orlando gets most of its rainfall during the summer, with June and July being the city's wettest months. Summer also brings hurricane season, which lasts from June 1 until November 30. This simply indicates the time of year when hurricanes are more apt to form. Morning humidity runs about 90 percent year-round, though in the afternoon it tapers down to between 50 and 60 percent, depending on the time of year. Humidity makes the air feel warmer.

Florida also surpasses the rest of the nation, except for Hawaii, in the amount of sunshine the state receives. This is seasonally driven, with the most sun blessed days, nearly 75 percent, enjoyed in April and May, compared to the national average of 60 to 65 percent for the same time period. The city also experiences fairly average wind speed throughout the year.
