What Houston's climate is currently like and will be like the next decade. Way more humid, way hotter nights, extremely short winters, and no fall anymore due to massive drop in temperatures after November.

My main complaint with Houston is the amount of rain. C+

C+ or a B- in my book, not bad at all

D
It's too hot and prone to flooding. You should post one that just includes the extremes from 2000-present.

Houston has a very nice climate... summers are a tad too hot but otherwise splendid

Winters would be better without those pesky blue northers.

I will give it a B-.

What is the period of record here? Even the most recent 10 years (2009-2018) has 80.6F as an average annual high and 60.8F as an average annual low. Unless you're making this to show the climate experienced by a millennial who will live in Houston for their whole life, it doesn't make sense.

I rate Houston a C+ because summers are too hot and humid but otherwise it's a nice climate with good precip/sun and good weather patterns throughout the year. Winters could be a little bit colder but not by much.

D+, summer and may/sept are gross, winter is a bit too mild but acceptable. The current houston is probably borderline C-/D+.

A for me, but I've lived in Houston for 40+ years. A little warm on some summer days, but that's not a deal breaker.

F. I've lived here most of my 42 years. Overdevelopment is a major cause of our severe flooding problem. Cut down all the trees and forested area, replace it with strip centers, toll roads, and parking lots, and, surprise surprise, there's nothing left to absorb large amounts of rainfall And there are no trees to provide shade, raising our electric bills and increasing temperatures throughout our concrete jungle. But it's all about the almighty $$$.
