The climate of Houston (Texas - United States of America)
Houston is located in the southeastern part of the state of Texas in Harris County. Houston is one of the largest cities in the United States. The city itself has a population figure of more than 2 million. The urban area is home to more than 6 million people. Houston was founded in 1936 and was named after the first president of independent Texas, Sam Houston. The city flourished when oil was found here and has ever since been known for its oil and gas industry. Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center is the official visitor center of NASA and attracts many tourists to the city every year. Many sports teams play their home matches in Houston. The Houston Astros compete in the Major League Baseball, the Houston Rockets in the National Basketball Association and the Houston Texans in the National Football League. Houston has a warm maritime climate with high precipitation figures all year round. Precipitation figures can even be compared to those of a tropical rainforest climate. During warm summer days humidity figures may rise. Most precipitation can be recorded during early summer. Houston is located on the edge of Tornado Alley. Please, bear this in mind during tornado season.
