I've been googling and do not yet have a clear answer. We have about 7 days of holidays during thanksgiving, and our choices are Florida and Colorado. (We're from Dallas, Texas).

I heard Colorado is quite frozen at that time of the year, and we probably may not have much to do for 6-7 days! Just wanted to know if Florida is gonna be rainy.

    Colorado won't necessarily be frozen. I hosted a Thanksgiving at my place in Denver a few years ago and it was mid-50's. We actually get most of our snow in February. They say that if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes.... Sep 28, 2016 at 13:23

    What is your definition of "quite frozen". While the night time lows are below the freezing point of water, the average daily high temps in Denver are in the 50's F for the month of November. Certainly not as warm as Florida on average, it is a far cry from freezing cold unless you are used to extremely hot temps Sep 28, 2016 at 14:20
  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is debating about a future event.

Winters in Florida can be relatively dry as most significant rain is supposed to be over by onset of Fall. However, as a tropical, coastal state, Florida is always subject to the possibility of rains, so there is no way to guarantee there wont be rain during Thanksgiving.


Weatherspark's averages page for Orlando indicates that in late November there is typically a ~30% chance of rain on any given day. For Panama City up in the panhandle, the chance is lower at 20% but I would still expect rain at some point if you're there for a week.
