Only got to 80F today in San Antonio. However, a major cold front is coming through, and only predicted to reach 60 tomorrow.
We'll check back in August and see how things are doing...

Pointless curiosity, but I thought I'd ask!

Summers are brutal for astronomy as the very hot air is never still I have 2 camping trips up to the grand canyon in summer for the extra dark and cooler temps.
But of course in the winters most of the time it's not below 40F even in the middle of the night.
Always a compromise!

The seeing here is as good as most places away from the lake in the summer and fall but we suffer from frustrating lake effect in the winter and spring. To much moisture coming off the lake creating low clouds. I live in a small town without much light pollution. I have 21.3 SQM readings out my back door. The best I've seen in this area is in the Apostle Islands where I've had readings of 21.6. In general the seeing is normally poor but every once in a while we get a treat. You have to be patient.
