If you’re from Texas, you’ve probably heard that in Texas, if you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes! Here in Central Texas, we are blessed with slightly more stable weather. Our climate is classified as “humid subtropical” with hot summers and mild winters.
Winter weather – Freezing temperatures typically only occur about 23 days a year. Cold spells usually only last a few days. It’s not unusual to have some 80 degree days in December and January, however we might have an ice storm (and the very rare occasion of a light dusting of snow).
Summer weather – It’s hot (we are in Texas!). Daytime temps are usually in the 90’s, but can reach 100 degrees (we always have at least a few!). Summer nights are usually pleasant.
Most of the time, the moderate effects of the Gulf of Mexico limit daytime highs; however, they also add higher humidity. Precipitation is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year. The heaviest amounts of precipitation occur in May and September.
Precipitation: 31.35 in (79.63 cm)
