Latest post of the previous page:Averages, August is hottest in terms of stretches of heat & no rain, but we had a nice mild August, compared to other years. We hit the 100++'s early (like May-June) last year and got it out of the way, because it never actually got cold last winter. Now, I live up on the north end of town, behind Braker & IH35, and we're in what they consider "low-lying areas and creek beds". It gets 5-10 degrees colder there than downtown, which makes a difference when the overnight lows are in the 30's and I'm left trying to figure out how to scrape frost off my windshield armed with nothing but some CD cases, ATM card and driver's license. Last year, I lived in South Austin, and didn't have this issue. :b
The coldest month(s), in my experience is January/early February. The snow? VERY rare. We'll occasionally have ice storms up to March some years though. The first year I lived here, there was an ice storm in mid-Feb that crippled the city for a day or two.
Yeah, I have a collection of really nice long coats. They languish unused... when it actually *is* cold, I have to make a tough decision as to which coat gets to come out this year for the two days it's needed.
I made peace with the fact that I live in short sleeves most of the year. :'
