In the summer HOT months (sounds like May thru October), are there periods of relief? Or is it hot & humid ALL of the time, day and night? And is there a point where the high temp just doesn't matter anymore (i.e. above 95 it's all bad)?

In Chicago, summers are pretty oppressive, but there are chances for some really nice weather. On a recent vacation back there, I remember a Cubs game in July a few years back where the weather seemed positively Californian, and stayed that way for days. Of course they lost.

Early morning and late afternoon. Other than that, just chase the shade. May and June aren't really that bad. July and August are awful. September and October it starts to cool down a bit, again. Cloudy days, if they come, are a reprieve. If it rains, it doesn't always cool things down. Feels like your in a rain forest. Today, so far, is nice. The weather in Texas changes often. What I said above is general. What I get a kick out of is how the weather can be different on one street. I mean like, it can be raining on one half of a street and the other half will be bone dry.

The only relief from the summer heat is if an afternoon thunderstorm comes in from the coast (known as seabreaze showers) to cool you off for a couple of hours. So pretty much once it starts to get hot, it stays hot until our first cold front which won't come until late September or Early October if your lucky.

Thanks everyone! We went to Austin in the beginning of Oct. last year and I loved it.The year before was the Corpus Christi Camping trip in August!LOL Now this year we will go for a week in Aug. just to test the waters in Austin.

I love heat just not the Phoenix, Vegas kind of blast furnace heat.

I have traveled from Ohio to California many, many times and I have to say, hands down Texas people are the best! I have never met more kind and friendly people as in Texas. I just hope with all the transplants (like me) wanting to move there that they leave any attitudes back where they came from

Thanks!

It's really not that humid during the summer, just hot.

LOL Love Roses! I'm glad to hear the true blooded Texans keep the transplants (including me soon) in check. My Dad was born and raised in Texas. He left when he married my Mom and she didn't want to be away from her family. Whe he left, he stopped the car and cut some grass and carried it in his wallet. When he passed away 35 yrs later, I opened his wallet and there it was, that grass was still there.

He left his heart in Texas.
