Destination Basics

Houston offers visitors a moderate and mild fall and spring with a nice, comfortable heat coming by way of southeast winds from the Gulf of Mexico. You may encounter a little rain during this time so it may be a good idea to keep a rain jacket or umbrella with you.

Winters are still fairly warm. At its coldest – usually in January – daily highs still average more than 17 C. Snow is rare. Lows in the evening are around 4 C. You may want to keep a light jacket or fleece sweater with you if you plan to be out later in the day.

Summers are hot in Houston. It’s not uncommon for temperatures to reach upwards of 32 C each day. The humidity of the area can make the temperature seem much warmer, so be sure to stay hydrated. While a light wind can offer a little relief, seriously consider accommodations with air conditioning. Same goes for renting a car. If you’re travelling with children, we recommend staying at a hotel with – or near – a pool.
