Windermere, FL Overview

"Among the lakes" is the phrase that the town of Windermere has chosen for its description, and aptly so.  Almost completely surrounded by water, Windermere is a lovely small town that will always be limited in population growth by available land.  Lake Butler is the largest body of water in the region, which is often referred to as the "Butler chain of lakes."  Situated in southeast Orange County, the residential villages and homes throughout the lake area are as beautiful as the backdrop of scenery they enjoy.  Some multi-million dollar lakefront mansions combine with more modest but often luxurious homes in a variety of architectural styles.  The Islesworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere rivals the lush fairways of highly acclaimed Bay Hill for sheer bayside splendor.  Also located in this small town is a fully accredited independent school for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade called Buena Vista Academy.  While the residents of Windermere can enjoy the exclusive resort setting and serenity of their community, the first-rate cultural, educational, and healthcare advantages of Orlando remain close to home.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
