Weather in Austin

The best time to visit Austin is during the months of September through May. Austin has an exceptionally hot summer with most days reaching 37C (100F) with high humidity. It is not advisable to visit during June, July or August unless you enjoy pools of sweat accumulating at your feet. It is also during this time that most foliage has died due to the heat and the area looks like the landscape of Mars. The fall and spring months are most enjoyable, with the weather typically resting between 21C (70F) and 26C (80F).
