Is it hot like a Vegas or Arizona summer heat or like a SE (Carolina's to FL) kind of heat? Is it humid all summer or a dry heat?

Depends on what you're used to. I consider it a humid heat, nothing like AZ or LV, which are dry heats indeed.

Others that live in Austin will tell you that it's a dry heat.

Don't believe them !

You're from LA? You'll hate it. Think north valley during a crushing heat wave for 2-3 months.

Not really humid, but not desert.

Yes it's hot. But it's an uncomfortable hot.

I moved from Florida where humidity was in the 90's so Austin's heat was very dry to me.

This. It's not dry. CO and AZ are dry. And it lasts for 4-5 months straight, NOT 3.

We moved from GA. I find the heat to be very dry.

It can definitely be blazing hot, especially in the sun. I actually find the evenings (as the sun goes down) to be some of the greatest temps of the day because it typically feels SO COOL compared to the afternoon. Especially when there's a lovely breeze.

Mornings are definitely humid, but that burns off quickly.

It's a dry heat in the summer. If you want a humid heat, go to Houston!
