Weather 
Many people think that Austin’s climate is desert-like, but that’s not true. The city has a humid  environment with a pro-longed season of chilly winter and hot summers. During the summer season,  July and August are the hottest months that go above 38 degrees, and it can be so for several days. There  are thunderstorms at that time caused by afternoon heat that builds up. The temperatures don’t  decrease even at night, and therefore you need to have light clothes for the season. The summer season  is followed by the Fall season. Here the temperatures are moderate, and it’s the best time to have  outdoor activities. The season starts in September and goes up to November. The Fall season in Austin  ushers in the winter. This season is frigid, and sometimes it gets below freezing. However, you will not  experience snow during winter. Winter runs between December and January. The humidity comes with rainstorms and has never been below 30 percent, even when it is raining. January is the coldest month in the city while May is the wettest month. Sometimes the city experiences flash flooding, especially in early May and June. 

Cost of Living 
Before moving to any City, it’s good to know about the cost of living. Compared to other cities in the USA, Austin is relatively cheaper. This is in terms of food, housing, transport, and medical cost. As a  newcomer, it would be wise to go for more affordable places and avoid the suburbs. This will enable you  to live within your budget, thus avoid falling into debts and stress.
