Could be warm enough for shorts, but could be cold. Best to look at the forecast a few days before you go, and no no one gets dressed up for dinner, it's all very casual.

It's hard to say what the weather will be and it could change from day to day. The best thing to do is pack in layers. You may find it warm enough during the day for shorts but it can get very cold at night. Keep an eye on the forecast but take a variety of clothes so you'll be covered for anything. St. Pete won't be that much warmer than Orlando.

Early December can be nice and warm in the afternoons. You just never know. Like the other posters said, be sure to look at the forecasts right before you go and bring at least one sweater or sweatshirt and a pair of pants.

No dressing up needed for "regular" eating out.

We visited last December for the first two and a half weeks. We found the weather very pleasant and wore shorts everyday. We did wear jeans the night we went to Mickeys Christmas party but still had a t-shirt on. Cooler in the early mornings and does cool down in the evening but nice and sunny during the main daylight hours. There was no humidity which was fantastic. We did go swimming a few times and enjoyed the weather so much that we are returning on the 1st December until the 18th. It was great especially as there had been quite alot of snow in the UK and my son couldnt get to work. Do check the weather prior to your departure so you get a good idea of what your looking at. We went to Sanibel Island for a couple of nights and rode our bikes all over.

We also visit in June which is another story.

Hey,

We were there for Xmas last year and it was quiet cool even for Florida that time of year, we had packed inappropriately and ended up buying warmer clothes when we were there. As previous posters look at the forecast before you go, you will then have a rough idea.

"Help!! I forgot to see what the weather would be before I spent 4000 Quid on a holiday!!"

Just joking, but your panic is misplaced as average weather is something you check before you pay anything. And anyway, it is too early to know what kind of winter we are having this year.

Last year, it was Scorching in October, up to over 95F. That was followed by the worst winter in 40-80 years, depending on your area of Florida. the previous year, the winter was OK. but late October was very cold.

For December, you just need to wait (having already booked so can't change). And as you don't need to pack more than 10 days in advance, check the 10 day forcast at weather.com.

Chances are, your shorts will be used in the daytime, but you'll need either long sleeves or maybe a jacket for over short sleeves, and maybe at least one pair of long trousers/jeans etc for nights/evenings. these you could wear for your fight so as to reduce the amt of luggage you bring.
