So how are you going to explain the overnight lows and dew points at Port Aransas and South Padre Island?

August 2018, Port Aransas: https://www.wunderground.com/dashboa...erId=undefined

August 2018, South Padre Island: https://www.wunderground.com/dashboa...erId=undefined

Is that hard to believe that parts of Texas have both higher summertime overnight lows and dew points than FL?

**EDIT*, looks like the links aren't working. Here is the South Padre wunderground station, you'll have to manually scroll down and look at the history: https://www.wunderground.com/dashboa...ocalwx_pwsdash

As I said S. Florida has much longer summer and hotter than Houston. Today 76F dewpoint in Fort Lauderdale and 57F in Houston.

South Florida is warm for longer than Houston is, but when talking about May-September I don't think Houston is cooler than South Florida.

A-.

The only problem is the flooding/hurricanes, i.e. natural disaster events.

Other than that, the summers look awesome. 95 degree highs might sound too toasty, but all those afternoon thunderstorms mean that 95 degree high drops quickly.

Got to love those warm nights, too. Perfect for walking around in shorts and sandals.
