Potentially dangerous weather headed for Disney World tomorrow

If you’re visiting the Walt Disney World Resort right now, or if your plans for visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth and taking in some of that 50th anniversary celebratory spirit begin tomorrow, you’ll want to keep the weather app on your phone open so you can keep an eye on developing weather forecast to hit the Lake Buena Vista area tomorrow.

It can even be a good idea to make a tangible or mental list of experiences you can have, should the rain cause you and your traveling party to be restricted to areas that offer the luxury of a roof over your head.

According to The Weather Channel, the high temperature in the parks at Walt Disney World tomorrow, October 28, will be about 84 degrees, with greater than an 80% chance of rain and thunderstorms, some possibly severe. Southerly winds of up to 20 miles per hour are also forecast, though these aren’t cause for serious concern.

Scattered thunderstorms are possible in the morning hours at the parks, giving way to mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon before the potential for more thunderstorms returns.

If you’ve frequented the parks at Walt Disney World before, you are probably familiar with the weather in Central Florida. It can be blue skies and sunshine one minute, and dark, ominous clouds and lightning the next. Most of the usual afternoon rainshowers in Central Florida don’t last very long, but what they lack in duration, they often make up for in intensity.

Even if it doesn’t look like rain when you head to the parks, it’s always a good idea to at least have a poncho with you, especially if rain or thunderstorms are forecast for the day. (Hint: there’s a reason they’re called “pop-up” showers.)
