    Hey,

    Just wondering if the texas members could do me a favour...

    Could you tell me what the average HIGH temperature is during Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter seasons?

    Thanks.

    Fuggin hot 80% of year about sums it up. Seriously, its shorts weather until late november, then again by early march. Highs in summer easily top 100, and we typically have about 80% humidity (arizona aint got nuthin on us there) which makes the heat index about 120ish. Not sure about the highs during the rest of the year, all I know is if its cool out, its time to work on ****...

    You must understand that fall only lasts 3 days. 10 days ago it was 104, 3 days later it was 53. Fall has arrived. Now it is 58 in the a.m. and 80 around 2pm and 62 at night.
    Summers average high 102 We havent had a cold winter in like 3 years(one that made ice and snow) so figure 45. Spring, another 3 day season, 65

    Not to mention that the weather can be different in other parts of the state. Eastern Texas is humid and I imagine they don't get any snow, whereas West Texas is dry and the further north increases the chance of snow in the winter and yes, snow is common in winter :D

    Yes, I forgot. What part of Texas? You must remember, Texas is very big. From El Paso, it is a shorter distance to California than to Dallas

    So in Texas right by the gulf of mexico the humidity kills the heat because its so high? Compared to more inland northwest texas its more dry heat with less humidity?
    Thanks for the help.

    I'm from victoria which is near the coast ( about 40 miles as the crow flys). There its hot and humid. The heat aint so bad but the humidity makes the heat index higher. Some days you walk outside in the mornings its so humid you are drenched in sweat in about 30 minutes of work. I go to school in San Marcos, which is near austin in the hill country. It is beautiful here. It gets hot but its not near as humid. It can get cold in the winter. Well cold for texas, but the cold dont last to long. Texas Weather changes quick It can go from 90 to 40 in a day. All that being said, Texas is a wonderful place to live and I wouldnt trade it for the world. Plenty of good folks around. If youre ever down this way hit me up with a PM it would be cool to meet up with some ck5 brothers.

    Exactly the same thing I thought...you guys copied Canada :haha: :haha: :haha:
    Just Kidding.

    How flat/rough is texas? Its more east than some places so I think it might be flat like Alberta or Saskatchewan. Or does it have hills and mountains? Just trying to get a visual.

    It really depends on where you are, I live in San Antonio, which is surrounded by the Hill Country. Theres some really beautiful scenery around here.

    We have everything. In the east, its piney woods and hillbillies. In the south, its rolling brush country and mexicans. In the north its rolling planes and yankees. In the west its desert and small mountains with football players. And in the middle, its the hill country (lots of small rocky hills) with yuppies.
