We've wintered a couple years in Fort Myers. We are thinking of trying another part of the country next year. We are looking at Mission Texas.
We keep hearing that the wind is a big deterrent. Is it really that bad? I'm ok with the temps a bit cooler but combined with a strong wind might not work for the warmth I'm looking for.

Currently in the Mission area (Weslaco) yes the winds can be strong at times, but they aren't constant. I got here around December 10 and I only know of one time that the winds blew hard enough to worry me.
This is our 3rd year in the Valley and we'll be back again next year.
By the way I live in the Louisville Ky area and while we were down here last year the winds were so strong back home that they blew my Grill over.
So my point is the wind can blow anywhere.

By the way I just looked at the 15 day weather forecast for both us and Fort Meyers and we have 10 days at 75 or higher vs your 5 days. You have 2 days where the lows are in the 40's and we don't have any predicted.
I'm currently paying $540 a month whereas you are probably north of $1,000.
Come on over.

Weather is not climate. Right now there is a cold spell in Florida. It will pass. If you Google climate for both Mission, TX and Fort Myers, FL you will see the average highs and lows during the Winter are about 5 degrees higher in Fort Myers. Not a lot, but it's not colder like you are suggesting. It's warmer on average, Winter after Winter.

If you dig a little deeper the difference in the Hi and Low temperatures in S Fla is 10-12 degrees most days during the winter. In S TX the average is 15-20 degrees plus the 5 degrees ^^^^ adds up.

The temperature in Miami dropped to a nippy 40 degrees Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service, and the wind chill was in the mid-30s.
Apparently Iguanas were falling from the trees and residents were warned to watch out for falling Iguanas. Saw this on the news tonight in the Rio Grande Valley, I am serious this was really on the news.

Yes, RGV is generally much windier than Florida. We've stayed in both areas many times. Other than the flat terrain, wind is the worst aspect of RGV.

At this time, 11:20 am CST, it is 68 degrees in Orlando, FL and 68 degrees in McAllen, Tx. One costs $10/day, the other $30. The wind is about the same. Been to both many times. Now in Texas.

When we were there in 2004 It was almost impossible to go for a bike ride. The awning was never used.
The car dealer down the road had a flag half the size of a basketball court and it was out flapping as stiff as a sheet of plywood.
Once was enough.
