End of July to early August is very hot.

Again, Christmas has the lowest temperature on average on any given date. Good reason that Christmas is cold as it should be. 8-)

Again, late July to early August is very hot.

It seems much cooler in late December to early January.

Interestingly, late August is very hot in terms of high temperatures. Many record highs happen in mid to late August.

Got the data from this link.

Wonder what month has the most 32°F or colder? This is from June 1, 1969 to December 31, 2015.

January 270
February 150
March 48
April 3
October 2
November 53

No surprise that January has the most 32°F or colder. There have been 730 32°F or colder at KIAH.
