Galveston Seasons and Weather

Galveston’s coastal climate is responsible for keeping it a little warmer than its inland neighbors in the winter and a little cooler in the summer. We joke that we only have 2 seasons, hot season (4 months between May 27th – Sept 27th) and cold season (3 months between December 3rd – March 2nd), but the reality is that you would have to spend the entire year to see the subtle nuances of our island. A chart will tell you one thing, but only the seasoned know of the joy of waking up one October morning to feel the cool breeze giving respite to the hot muggy days of summer. Or the delight in a mid-spring cool front before the beginning of the much enjoyed summer months.
