North Texas Weather

According to the National Weather Service,

The Dallas-Fort Worth climate is humid subtropical with hot summers. It is also continental, characterized by a wide annual temperature range. Precipitation also varies considerably, ranging from less than 20 inches to more than 50 inches.

Winters are mild but northers occur about three times each month and are often accompanied by sudden drops in temperature. Periods of extreme cold that occasionally occur are short-lived so that even in January mild weather occurs frequently.

The highest temperatures of summer are associated with fair skies, westerly winds, and low humidity. Characteristically, hot spells in summer are broken into three to five-day periods by thunderstorm activity. There are only a few nights each summer when the low temperature exceeds 80F. Summer daytime temperatures frequently exceed 100F. The average length of the warm season in North Texas is 249 days from mid-March until Late in November. Snowfall is rare.
