Tampa was voted the nation's sweatiest city. Just a thought. As with any oppressively humid area around the Gulf, don't look at raw temperature data because down here it's meaningless. Always look at the heat index/real feel. Insane summer dew points can make a 90 degree day feel like 110.

The answer is the Texas coast, Corpus and Padre have both topped 100 multiple times, a rare feat in Florida, and it's not a dry heat either, think dewpoints in the 70s so heat indexs OVER 110!

It's humid because hey, it's on the gulf. But if it's that hot in Corpus, Padre, and even Houston, it's mostly coming from the dry SW winds. Because even though Deep South Texas has hit 100 multiple times, you can count on one hand how many times it occurs in the summer. Many summers, they don't hit 100 at all (like this one). But they do hit the upper 90s which is rare in Florida.

All that concrete really makes you feel like you're broiling.

For that matter, however, even Houston Summers are a cake walk compared to the 5 years we spent in North Texas. It was brutal.
I was watching a video on walkability in Houston and the guy speaking said that Texas cities do not help themselves by concreting everything. DFW probably uses more concrete than the Houston area but the Houston area uses enough. He also said, because of establish the inner loop is and how little concrete it actually has, it's actually cooler than the rest of the metro.

This thread certainly brings up the obvious question with current events. Do you still want to move to the Texas Coast? And if you are already there, are you having second thoughts? My guess is most will not have 2nd thoughts and most will still want to move there who already decided to. Any thoughts?
