Does anyone know if there is a time of year when it is highly unlikely to be no thunder storms in Orlando?
yeah I'd say anytime too but I guess the official season would be from start of June to End of November, so the frequency is likely to be higher during that time.
BUT I've seen a lot of people freak out about this and in my experience, it's not generally a worry. The majority of downpours are just an hour in the afternoon and in the height of summer in Florida, it can be quite pleasant to have a storm bring the temperature down a smidge for a few hours into the evening.
I know a couple of people in the office said they'd never go because of the storms and I think that's kinda crazy
Very hard to predict. The winter months into spring can be the time when they are least expected, but they still happen.
There is quite a difference between heavy rain and the thunder and lightning. They don't always happen together.
Is it the actual thunder, Claire? Or, is it loud thunder like noises? I ask because you can hear the fireworks for miles. I sometimes think they are thunder.
There is no safe time to go, unfortunately. We've had thunder and lightning storms on Christmas. Summer would definitely be worse than any other season. Late fall into winter could be the "safest."
