Lake Livingston Weather & Climate

The North Texas Piney Woods Region lies in a humid subtropical climate zone. This region in eastern Texas receives more rainfall than any other region in the state. More than 60 inches annually of rain falls in the far eastern portion. This is due to the Gulf of Mexico currents that carry humid air to the region. While coastal sections see the most cloudy days statewide, northern sections see the most sunny days. This area is prone to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, generally in the springtime. The heat of summer is intensified by high humidity. During winter and spring along the immediate coast, temperatures are kept cool by relatively cool Gulf waters. In late winter and early spring, dense fog, called advection fog, can form when warm air moves over the cool shelf waters. The region is also vulnerable to hurricanes, although plenty of warning is generally given for these types of storms.
