I'm considering spending this Summer in Corpus Christi working with my company(Vivint Inc) to install alarm systems and various other equipment. I'm wondering how bad the Summers are there. I grew up in Maryland and now live in Utah, so I've never experienced a Texas Summer. Luckily for me, I just read on Wikipedia that Corpus Christi is quite windy, which should play into my favor. I'm also guessing I should bring bug repellant. If I go out for the Summer, I will most likely head out towards the end of April and be back in Utah in September.

Very windy, VERY humid! Bring tons of bug spray and make sure wherever you live has a good A/C system. And bring sunscreen! This was my first summer here and I'm sure it's not normal but we hit many days over 100 in August (103-106 was not uncommon for a few weeks). And what little rain we got brought no relief, just made things feel 10 times worse

Actually, it was a rather unusual summer with the heat and lack of rain. The whole state of Texas had its hottest summer on record, and among the driest as well.

Typical summers in Corpus are fairly hot, but the sea breeze DOES mitigate alot of the heat (although the humidity interferes with the mitigating effects some). Late summer the entire Texas coast has the chance of seeing tropical disturbances.

Typical summer days are in the low to mid 90s, with overnight temps in the mid to upper 70s. Winds are from the SouthEast nearly the entire time. Occasionally, thunderstorms will cool a hot afternoon (briefly). Do bring the bug spray. There are ALOT of critters.

The bugs weren't too bad last summer since it was so dry, but yes for a typical summer you want to have something handy for those. The wind isn't as bad during the summer, but that isn't really saying much. I think we're like, the 17th windiest city in the nation? Great for wind sports. I recommend you bring plenty of water with you when you're on the job, in case you are spending a lot of time outdoors or in places where there is no AC. Also, not many think to do this (I know I always forget) but you may want to keep a light sweater in your car. A lot of places overcompensate on the AC. I have gotten the sniffles in a department store one July some years ago.

It's warm, but it wasn't any different for me than eastern NC as far as temperature and humidity. It was actually more tolerable because of the breezes that we have here.
I went more than 100 days consecutively with the doors off on my Jeep and didn't suffer heat stroke. Hell, I drove 3 hours to Houston with the top down and didn't have a problem. You just have to get used to it, and not live with the A/C in your house set on 60. People live in worse climates and don't have air conditioning, I promise you can make it here.
