The Woodlands Weather & Climate

Southwest Texas has a humid subtropical climate with very hot summers. An average of 99 days per year reach above 90 degrees F. High humidity causes the heat index to rise even higher. Winds are often light in the summer and offer little relief from the heat. This region is often called "the most air-conditioned place on earth." Spring super cell thunderstorms sometimes bring tornadoes to the area, although it's not officially part of "Tornado Alley." Winters in southeastern Texas are mild. Snowfall is rare. The average high in January, which is the coldest month, is 63 degrees F. Average annual rainfall in this area is 50 inches. Storms dump large amounts of rain causing flash floods. Prevailing winds are from the south and southeast during most of the year, bringing heat from the deserts.
