Exploring the Weather and Environment of Lewisville and The Colony

Many people who haven’t lived in Texas before tend to assume the entire state runs at a temperature of 100 degrees for most of the year, but the truth is the state does offer its inhabitants some fairly large extremes in temperature and weather over the average year.

In Lewisville, which sits right next door to The Colony, the minimum temperature seen in December, which has some of the coldest days of the year, is 16 degrees Fahrenheit, according to data from Area Vibes. Conversely, the highest temperature seen in July, which is the hottest month of the year, is 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Although the temperature doesn’t always get to 16 degrees in the winter and the summers don’t always see 104 degrees, the “spread” between those two extremes is quite a bit more than many other places in and outside of Texas.
