Texas Hill Country

Hi...have a question about the summer temps in the Texas Hill Country.

We're from central Florida, so heat isn't as much of an issue as would be for some, but I keep hearing about the awful temps. We haven't been able to get there in a milder time of year, so want to try for this summer - specifically July.

Two years ago as we were headed to the Black Hills, we encountered temps of 105 & 106 in Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, and eastern SD. We were shocked as Florida never has those temps. I kept saying we needed to go home to cool off. Yes, we survived, but not sure we want to knowingly endure those temps again unless we have to.

So,what can we expect in the Texas Hill Country area during July?

Thanks for the input.

Bring your air conditioning to Texas in July---upper 90 to low 100 degrees.

Agree! VERY HOT, yet lower humidity than in Houston or along the Texas coast. GOOD THING is the Texas Hill Country is very scenic
If you like day trips, Kerrville or Fredericksburg are two nice home bases.

Heard the other day on Jimmy Fallen, The phrase "It's not the heat, it's the humidity" really means "The weather sucks, but not in the way you think it does". I've been in the Texas Hill Country for 35 years. I consider my S&B home to be the ultimate winter retreat, but as soon as I can retire, I plan to make a quick exodus to higher elevations by late May to Sep. With that said, we are having an amazing spring and early summer this year. It's barely hit the mid 90's a couple times. A few years ago, we had already experienced a dozed 100+ degree days by now, and 105 had became the new 100. We are in a 10 year + drought with high hopes of a El Nino year in the Pacific.

Is September very hot? We've considered making the visit in September.

Sept is the tail end of summer, its typically still warm, but not smoking hot. Some years Sept is perfect temp other years nor so much. Plan for the later part of Sept and you will be set.

September is a crap shoot. It can stay hot through October some years. I gave birth to my son on Sept 23 and came home too 100 degree weather from the hospital. Generally it is still very warm thru September. Heck, we wear shorts to Christmas dinner some years!

I agree with everything said...in spades. The temps rarely get below the 90-100+ range in summer especially July.

And, just on a personal note, rather than spend my usual summer in the Hill Country this year, I decided to stay in South Florida due to the "mild" temps. Yours in central Florida aren't much better.
