Houston's humid subtropical climate means it is hot and wet in the summer and temperate in late fall, winter, and early spring. June, September, and October are the wettest months, and summer thunderstorms are common. To avoid the summer heat, an extensive seven-mile system of skywalks and tunnels has been built to link buildings in downtown with convenience stores, restaurants and shops.

The best months to come to Houston are February, March and April, with daytime temperatures in the high 60s and 70s and little rain.
