I visited Houston from the 16-19 and didnt feel the heat was extremely bad. When I arrived it was 96 with a feels like temp of 108. Everyday I was outside in the heat and it didnt really bother me. Why is that ? I was expecting to melt. I noticed Houston has alot of those poofy clouds so it was always shade and a slight breeze. I cant believe the heat didnt bother me as much because from reading about Houston I thought it would be the most miserable place on earth. The only time it really got to me was when I was waiting in line yesterday at the breakfast klub. Does anyone else feel the same way? Yes its really hot, but it was nothing compared to Palm springs or Vegas

I think it's bad for people who aren't used to the heat and humidity. But yeah, compared to other places (even Dallas) the heat here isn't that bad. And the winter is MUCH milder.

The heat itself is not that extreme in Houston.
What bothers most is continuous heat without breaks for few months in a row.
It's been like that since early May this year so far, almost 4 months.
Next week apparently won't be different.
I'm not really complaining though, I like heat in general.

I would be OK for THREE days too, but not for three MONTHS...
This Summer is very hot. Everywhere.
Heading overseas in few days, but there is very hot too.
Ugh..... No relief!

It’s way hotter this year than any of the previous five years I’ve been here. There are a few midday hours every day when it feels like the air conditioner isn’t exactly winning the battle. I’ve even been keeping my shades closed all day. I know locals do it to keep cool but I always thought it was silly. Not this summer.

Whining about heat is the number hobby in Houston

People here whine about the weather all year long,
Summer is too hot, Halloween is too hot, thanksgiving is too hot, Christmas is too hot, New Yearís Eve is too hot

Sorry, this isnít Chicago .... and I know for a fact that Chicagoís summerís are just as hot as Houstonís summer.

Vegas and Palm Springs has a dry heat. Yes their temps are high but it's easier to deal with. Here it may be in the 90's but it's like stepping in a sauna. The humidity makes a huge difference.

Houston's heat & humidity is at it's strongest from 12pm-4pm. Generally, if you know how to dress accordingly, the heat and humidity shouldn't bother you.
