What he said. I believe Dallas has the better weather because of it, eventually you get used to the heat and don't sweat so much in Dallas, but in Houston (or any place on a coast) it's unavoidable.

I'm a Dallasite who played golf in Houston on a trip in May. It rained at 10AM for about 15 minutes. I thought, "oh good, this should cool us off". When the sun came out it was like we were in hell's sauna. Squared.

I just moved from Houston to Dallas..... if you look historically at the two cities, you'll see in the summer, Dallas averages 4 or 5 degrees warmer than Houston, but Houston has another 10% humidity on average...... hence the effective temperature (What it feels like) is about the same. However, I think Houston's miserable summer weather lasts longer than Dallas.

However, in recent years, for whatever reason, they both have been incredibly hot....(Record heat almost on a daily basis) I don't know why.

Dallas is cooler in the winter, but both are nice in non-summer months if you ask me.

Thanks a lot everyone for the info.

I lived in Houston from 1995 - mid 2003 + Fall 1990 - Mid 1992. I was a struggling student back then, first at UH in 1991, then at UHCL in 1999 for a different degree. No family whatsoever. The humidity in Houston was who drove me out of Houston. The humidity resulted in moldly environment in UHCL building that ruined my life. By the time I found out that those buildings especially the delta building (used for Computer science classes) were the culprits, my health had been ruined. As an Int'l Student, I just focused on finding my degree and getting well and the school got away with murder. I say that because 'for 2 1/2 years, NO ONE in the health center uttered a word that mold was causing my low grade fever. There was no nasal symptoms but they knew. I had to drop classes because of that fever. When I found out I was too weak from that infection + an unrelated surgery making my immune system compromised. I left as soon as I graduated (to Sacramento, CA because I had no choice.) I have recovered now and want to move back to where I can use my education in IT.

Dallas sounds like I can handle it. Sacramento gets pretty hot in the summer but it cools down at night. No need for CA most of the time at night.

Again, thanks everyone.
