Hmmm...I am guessing the 4 major cities are....? Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso? or Austin?

Houston - Houston is great if you almost never want to have freezing temperatures. Lush vegetation and you can grown just about anything. Downside is lots of rain and high humidity.

El Paso - Best part of El Paso is almost no rain (8" a year, mostly during a 6 week stretch in summer) and very low humidity. Lots of sun. Can get quite dusty, however, and there is quite a temperature range during the year, or even during a single day.

Dallas - Very hot in the summer (seems to be the hotest of the major cities, but may be wrong), can be humid, but not as humid as Houston. Can get very cold in winter - some snow, more likely ice storms. If you like impressive thunderstorms, this is the place to be in the spring.

San Antonio/Austin - These cities have very similar weather (both are right on the edge of the hill country). For 'average' weather, these would be the most likely cities - moderate rain, lots of sun (the rain does usually come in short storms), hot in the summer, occasional cold spells in the winter that don't last. Humidity is moderate (much higher than west texas, much lower than coast).
