Summers are wonderfully tropical but a bit too hot and a tad dry at times. Otherwise I love all of the rain, the cloudiness and mild winters.

A bit of a nitpick, but Hobby Airport best represents central/urban Houston, not IAH.

Houston is for hardcore heat and humidity lovers. At least from May through September. Not too many places in the US can compete with the combination of high heat and high levels of humidity.

Oh trust me fort lauderdale can. Pretty much every single day of summer has heat indices over 100 many times 105F and above. Houston has nothing on SE Florida.

Lived in Houston for 2 1/2 years and while I loved the weather from late October to as late as the beginning of May, I absolutely hated the summers. Hated them. The heat on its own could be bearable, but unfortunately it never came without ridiculously high humidity. That far south, there was never a break like we get in the Midwest or elsewhere.
The falls/winters are why I graded a C instead of lower.
People down there might not be able to imagine living through a northern winter, but I missed having four seasons when I lived there and I have loved having them since I moved back up north.

Summer rainfall totals are quite higher in this period than the expanded 1981-2010 periods. Seems like the 2000s featured quite wet summers in Houston overall... at least totals-wise.

On the other hand, November is strikingly dry, in contrast to a wetter December. Seems like winter rainfall in Houston is related to the presence/absence of cold fronts.

This was how I interpreted it, but even so, it seems a little exaggerated. The winters seem reasonable, but I really doubt summer is going to warm 4F in Houston during the lifetime of a millennial. Maybe winter will, and maybe summer will warm that much in a place like Newfoundland, but I don't think heat of that level will reach Houston until probably near 2100, which most millennials probably won't make it to (unless we substantially extend lifespans, which is entirely possible).

The heat index isn't any better in Houston, also Fort Lauderdale is right by the coast while the intercontinental airport in Houston is Well inland from the coast, places in greater Houston like Galveston can definitely compete with southeast Florida during summer when days with highs in the 90s and lows in the 80s aren't uncommon and the dewpoint is also higher.

No, Ft.Lauderdale has higher dewpoints than Houston. But it does also have cooler summer temps, along with greater sea breeze presence, being right at the shore.
