Weather Information

The summers in Texas provide long stretches of clear skies and warm temperatures. Our rainy season is mainly in the spring (March-May) and sometimes the early fall (September-October) as seasons begin to change. Showers are generally short and intense and rainy periods last 1 - 2 days.

The winters are fairly mild. However, due to the size of our state, the temperature variance from the northernmost and southernmost points in Texas is an average of 20 degrees, with the southern tip (known as the Rio Grande Valley) usually in the 60’s and 70’s in the winter.

Snow is uncommon in most of the state; freezing rain and sleet is more likely when precipitation occurs, usually at the head of a cold front. Ice is a short-lived occurrence in most parts of the state below the Panhandle.
