We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.

The chance that a given day will be muggy in Austin is rapidly decreasing during November, falling from 21% to 8% over the course of the month.

For reference, on July 3, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 89% of the time, while on January 21, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 2% of the time.

This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.

The average hourly wind speed in Austin is essentially constant during November, remaining within 0.2 miles per hour of 9.6 miles per hour throughout.

For reference, on April 2, the windiest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 10.9 miles per hour, while on September 5, the calmest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 7.9 miles per hour.

This report illustrates the typical weather in Austin, based on a statistical analysis of historical hourly weather reports and model reconstructions from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2016.

Temperature and Dew Point

There are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Austin.

For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Austin according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.

The estimated value at Austin is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Austin and a given station.

The stations contributing to this reconstruction are:

  • Austin City, Austin Camp Mabry (KATT, 57%, 4 mi, north, 167 ft elevation change)
  • Bergstrom AFB / Austi (KBSM, 43%, 6 mi, southeast, 52 ft elevation change)

To get a sense of how much these sources agree with each other, you can view a comparison of Austin and the stations that contribute to our estimates of its temperature history and climate. Please note that each source's contribution is adjusted for elevation and the relative change present in the MERRA-2 data.

Other Data

All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition , by Jean Meeus.

All other weather data, including cloud cover, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and solar flux, come from NASA's MERRA-2 Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.

Land Use data comes from the Global Land Cover SHARE database , published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series.

We further caution that our travel scores are only as good as the data that underpin them, that weather conditions at any given location and time are unpredictable and variable, and that the definition of the scores reflects a particular set of preferences that may not agree with those of any particular reader.
