Just moved here last week and it seems the wind refuses to give up except from midnight to about 7am. Is this normal weather for this time of year, or is the wind a constant?

It's not always windy. Where I'm at (SE Houston) it's not windy at all. The weather varies a lot in the winter with only a handful of days below freezing.

Today wasn't too bad, but the past week the wind was very bothersome. The temperature has been great! I love not having to wear a jacket.

Seems like it's always windy as winter settles in. Then it dies down and it's nicer. Sometimes it can downright cold, but not too often.

The weather is unpredictable here - so, count with all kinds of abnormalities
However, we love it! There is never a dull moment!
You should always carry a thick sweater, a bathing suit and an umbrella in your car trunk. lol

^^^This

You literally never know around here. It can be pretty cold (almost freezing) one day and 80 degrees the next.

The wind was a bit out of the ordinary.

Texas (generally) features "Blue Northers", although those are much more obvious in north Texas---wall cloud that is purple/black/blue, with a greenish tint underneath; the temperature can drop 40 degrees in a matter of minutes, accompanied by wild weather (wind/rain/snow/sleet/hail with the sun shining).

The old saw (that I've heard all over the country) "If you don't like the weather in Texas, stand on a street corner for a minute, it'll change for ya..."

Other than our drought conditions, I can't imagine another place in the country having nicer weather than we did between the end of September through November. It has been an awesome Autumn weather wise.

As other people mentioned, late Fall, Winter, and early Spring are usually much more unpredictable. 80 degrees one day and 40 the next with 30 mph winds. It keeps you on your toes!

Thank you all! Today was beautiful. My daughter thinks it's hilarious that 50 is warm to us, and we see people all over with jackets and scarfs. We went into a store the other day; she in a short sleeved shirt, and the cashier asked her, " Where's your coat?" I can't wait til the 60 and 70 degree weather though.

LOL, you won't have very long to wait for the 70 degree weather, since it's supposed to be mostly in the 70's next week (CHRISTMAS WEEK!).

I drove all over town today with the top down (I have a convertible), in a short sleeve shirt and shorts. Gotta love Christmas shopping in shorts, one of the all-time great Houston traditions!

(We pet owners do hope for a couple of decent freezes, though, to keep the flea and tick population down to a dull roar).
