Weather: Very hot and humid in the summer, snow once a year, and the usual Texas wind!!!

Weather: It's all over the place. That's Texas for you though. We'll have ice days one week and 70 degree weather the next, no joke.

Weather: I love hot weather, so I like it here. There are still 4 seasons though but it only snows once or twice every year. I like to think of it as being Spring for 9 months of the year, 2 months of brutally hot summer (which I like and is not too bad because the humidity is low), and 1 month of cold winter.

Weather: i hate to walk (hot summer) from one class to another as the buildings are usually far.

4 College Junior

Weather: Weather in Austin is amazing. This year we had a few snow days but that was pretty unprecedented. Right now it is about 80 and sunny. It is good inspiration to go to the parks or the lake.

The weather in Austin is unpredictable. You can have just about any kind of weather that you could want in Austin. It rains, it snows (every once in awhile). It's hot, it's cold, it's warm, it's cool, it's sunny and it's cloudy. And we average 300 days of sunshine a year. Could you ask for much more? We have summer/springtime weather nine months out of the year, fall for two months and one month of winter. It hardly ever gets really cold, and the winters are generally mild. It did snow in 2003, though, and that was fun for everyone-we even got a snow day off from school. However, this is definitely a rare occurrence. The summers are hot, with lots of days in the high 90s and 100s.

As for clothes, bring jeans and T-shirts, shorts and tank tops, sweatshirts and one jacket, but nothing too heavy because you will not need it. Oh, and don't forget your umbrella. It rains fairly often here, but it then clears up pretty clearly. A popular saying in Texas is "If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes." That saying definitely applies in Austin. Overall, the weather is great; just don't get too attached to any certain kind of weather, because it will change for sure.
