The Climate at Silver Creek
The climate of the Sunshine state is influenced by the fact that all parts of the state are in close proximity to the ocean. Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state, is also a pivot point for the climate of Florida. Above the lake, which is where Silver Creek is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while the areas below the lake, to the south, experience a true tropical climate.
When staying in a vacation rental in Silver Creek,Clermont, then you should plan for weather ranging from warm and pleasant from October through until May, and extremely hot between June and September. Florida sees a lot of sunshine throughout the year and the temperatures rarely fall near or below freezing (0°C / 32F).
Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be hot and humid most days, with temperatures in the peak of summer reaching into the mid 90s F.
The rainy season arrives in May and runs on through until October. So, when leaving for the parks, you'll want to pack an umbrella and a plastic poncho, or similar. If you're a person who enjoys witnessing torrential downpours, then you can almost set your watch by the thunderstorms each afternoon during the summer month. It's also worth mentioning the Hurricane season which runs from July through to November. Fall/Autumn sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperatures and rainfall start to reduce. The winter months of December, January and February offer the coolest weather with January daytime temperatures averaging around 23°C / 73°F, but these can drop to 9°C / 48°F overnight. The driest months of the year can be found during late Fall, winter into early spring.
Other Vacation Homes to Consider
Silver Creek is a popular vacation rental community and if you've found a home that you like the look of, then you should send off an inquiry concerning its availability and exact prices. However, why stop there? There are dozens of vacation rental communtities in the Disney area, so it's worth your while checking out a few of the others. The three main areas for vacation rental communities around Disney are Davenport, Clermont and Kissimmee. The communities in Davenport and Clermont are a longer drive from most of the attractions, but they're often priced better than homes on the communities in Kissimmee. So, starting in Davenport, why not check out Bella Toscana and also, if you're into golf, Highlands Reserve . If you're looking to keep costs down, then we'd suggest looking at Crescent Lakes . Looking at vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde, which again is close to the parks.
If you spend a little more, then we'd advise you to take a look at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.
The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of people traveling before contacting as many homeowners as needed. This will allow you to determine which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be price, availability, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision.
