Austin Climate Recommendations

Technically classified as a humid subtropical climate, Austin occupies a unique area of Texas between the dry deserts of the Southwest and the more humid region of the Southeast. As a result, the area’s climate shares characteristics of both distinct regions. The summers are long and hot and the winters are short and mild. Anything in between is generally warm. Austin is prone to severe weather throughout the year, although most of it is concentrated in the spring. Severe weather can bring damaging winds, heavy rain and even tornadoes.
