When to go to Dallas?

by Vacation Lover »

I have an old friend there who just became a new mother. She really wants me to come down, but to be honest, I do NOT do well with heat and I wouldn't be able to get down until June. It'll be much too hot then, right? When does the heat let up in that part of the country?

Well, remember that you'll spend a LOT of time indoors in the air conditioning. But if you can't stand to be hot at all. You'd better wait until October. Apparently, Texas has been experiencing some 100 degree days already!

I know Dallas well.  Overally, April to early May is probably best, but June is probably just fine too.  It can be blazing in June (el nino type years), but in the past few, June hasn't been very bad.  We call August the "indoor season" - just say no.  It's too hot to swim.  It's too hot to move.  July can be terrible as well, but usually August is worst. 

I think you would be safe in June.   Ask the family how they keep their thermostats if you know they well enough. 

I dislike being scorching hot, and I think you will be okay in June.

Good advice in all of these posts. I have lived in the Dallas area for over 30 years and probably October is the safest if you want some nice sunshine with mild temperatures. September is a bit more unpredictable as the first part of the month can still be over 100, but the second half of the month usually is much nicer and finally cooling down some at night. Hope you have a good trip!

In June, Dallas averages 19 to 20 days over 90 degrees.  July has 27 days over 90 on average and August has 26.
