Houston Texas Weather...five day forecast and more!
Houston Texas weather is hot, humid and rainy. Houston is located in the flat Coastal Plains, about 50 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and about 25 miles from Galveston Bay. Numerous streams and bayous, plus close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico contributes to the development of heavy fog which averages 18 days per year and light fog 70 days per year. Humidity is high, especially during the summer. Temperatures are moderated by the influence of the Gulf of Mexico which results in mild winters. Houston weather averages 19 days below freezing and these usually last only a few hours since they are usually accompanied by clear skies.
Another effect of the Gulf is abundant rainfall, which is evenly distributed throughout the year. Snow rarely occurs and the winters are much milder. For those who want to spend a lot of time outdoors there is Galveston Island. Thirty-two miles of beaches, surf and sun make Galveston one of the most popular vacation destinations in Texas—even for Texans.
