My wife's daughter recently moved to Fort Worth area. We would like to move there but wonder if there is an area within 50 or so miles with elevation and possibly lower temps.

Lower temperatures within a 50 mile radius of Fort Worth? Well, perhaps Denton (when I lived there, for college, it was usually a couple of degrees cooler than Fort Worth), or north of Denton, closer to the Red River (mainly due to more rain along the river).

However, even then, if it reached 105 in Fort Worth, then Denton would rejoice in 102 degrees. Of course, going out west or northwest of Fort Worth is even worse (Wichita Falls, for instance, is often 10 degrees warmer than Fort Worth; if we are 103, they are 113).

We have a weekend house in East Texas, around Cedar Creek Lake, some 90 miles from west Fort Worth (where we live), and it is also a few degrees cooler than DFW area, but not by much. Of course, since it is the beginning of the piney woods, with lots of cedar trees, it creates problems for those allergic to cedar and such.

It must be faced: the DFW area is miserably hot during the summer, and prone to high levels of pollen, mold, etc. Those I know with COPD, allergies or other sinus problems are usually rather miserable and stay indoors as much as possible.

I am hard pressed to think of 'higher elevation' areas. There is a rather new development along loop 820 and the I-20/I-30 area of far west Fort Worth. The houses are on a high bluff. It is a gated community, with a guarded entrance, and I imagine that the houses cost a lot of money.

Good luck in your search.

That's probably because there is no such thing, especially not to the extent that it will influence the temperature in any significant way.

The Rockies are about 9 hours west of here.
