Florida Weather in February

We're thinking of going to Florida, but want to avoid really hot weather due to ds's eczema flare ups. Would it be reasonable weather in Feb? I don't want to go to Disney in a fleece!

It's been a bit hit and miss the past couple of years. There have been some freezing temps in FLA recently and Feb isn't usually particularly warm - maybe 60s-ish. The best weather is March/Apr/May. Mostly T-shirt weather from mid-March and doesn't get too hot until late May/June.

I've been in February. We had two weeks - one was temperatures in the late 20s, the other was more like 20/21 C. I loved it as I don't go for the really hot temperatures and I found the walking round Disney easier. The most we wore was a cardigan in the evening.

The advantage at Disney was also that there were hardly any crowds and we just walked onto stuff.

I do think it's hit and miss then though, there's definitely luck involved. However, having been at different times of the year, I would go in February again.

February was great for us. T shirt weather during the day, with a fleece at night. Not too crowded either.

We went in Feb half term 2000, + follwing week (1st week March). It was 70+ :) (A bit of a mini heatwave I believe) but perfect.

We had fleeces for the evening fireworks/parades but in shorts & T shirts in the days.

It was perfect for us. If your holiday clashes with the Washington Birthday Hols it will be busy, but the week after half term the place was empty, minimal queues.

Hit and miss.

I have been in Feb and its been late 70s and blue skies. I have also been (last year) and it was absolutely freezing, although sunny. Proper winter weather.

It's not a guaranteed sunshine holiday at that time of year, if that bothers you?
