I don’t care what the calendar says, it’s pleasant outside and I’ll take it no matter what month it is. Enjoy it while it lasts. ;)
I think a lot of us prefer to experience 4 seasons but unfortunately southeast TX isn’t the place for that.
Well, we have have 5 conditions, but they dont follow any schedule really.

Pea soup
Blast furnace and bone dry
Cold and nasty
Cold and dry
What’s the 5th one?

Remember where we live at... Our proximity to the Gulf makes it hard to stay cold for long here.Its a constant battle during the winter between cold air advection from cold fronts and the warm moist air from the Gulf.You're gonna have warm ups during the winter its just the way it is here.

I believe for your average person (someone who’s not really passionate and crazy about the weather), this weather would suit them just fine. Others, like myself, find it very boring.

I’ve lived here for 45 years, and there is absolutely nothing normal about us being in the 80s/near 80 for so many days in December and into January. Not saying it’s never happened, but it’s definitely not the norm or something to be expected here.

I don't mind the temps, but 70°F dewpoint is for Miamians. There's nothing comfortable about it. At least tomorrow will have a lower DP. this is about the only early winter (late Dec, early Jan) day I can ever remember here with this level of water vapor in the air.

70s in air temp, yes. 70°DP, no. Unfortunately, I had to turn on the A/C.

Exactly! This past weekend was actually pretty nice! Sunny blue skies with temps in the 30’s and 40’s. Honestly nothing to complain about.

There is a price to pay for having an arctic blast.. and this is it. lol Time to pay the piper. Maybe we'll have a few more cold snaps.. maybe not.. hard to say with any degree of confidence anymore. Who knows.

Oh well. We don’t really need the rain at my house. We’ll be ok for the next month without any.

Yes - we have a heavy line of showers moving through now. Lower dewpoints and more seasonable temps behind it.
