The weather conditions vary due to the location. The northern part of the state has cold semi-arid steppe climate, while central and southern parts are warm and humid, with hot summers and no dry season, and the west has a cold desert climate. Most people will find the ocean off Texas warm enough to enjoy swimming from April to October. South Padre Island offers the warmest water—around 21 °C in August.

June is a hot month with an average temperature of 30 °C. A small rain occurs, and thunderstorms are still quite common on the whole territory of the state. You can still catch some tornadoes, but chances are less than in May.
