As someone who lives in Texas, I know that Texas weather can change very fast. What is a beautiful sunny day the one moment, can, at certain times of the year, turn into a stormy, rainy day the next!
So I think it's important to take a look at an extended weather forecast, like a 5-day or 15-day weather forecast, when planning a Texas vacation.
The weather is usually quite reliable, but I hate getting caught by surprise!
Before I get to a specific weather forecast, let me give you a quick overview of the general Texas climate. (Skip to the Weather Forecasts)
Texas' climate varies quite a bit, depending on where you go. The most southern parts don't get snow, but the Panhandle does every winter. East Texas gets about 6 to 7 times more rain annually than West Texas.
The Gulf Coast has a maritime climate, with hot, humid summers and mild winters. The Central and Northern regions have a continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters.
Some say Texas essentially has two seasons, summer (April - October) and winter (November - March). Average summer temperatures range from about 88°F to 96°F, and average winter temparatures range from about 29°F to 48°F.
I regard Spring (April & May) and Fall (September & October) to be great times for a vacation. It's not quite as hot. However, there is a likelihood of thunderstorms, especially in Spring.
See the weather pages below for more specific climate information for Texas vacation spots.
Since the weather can vary so much from one area in Texas to another, it's hard to find a single weather forecast that covers the entire Texas. For that reason I decided to provide you with more focused forecasts for individual Texas vacation spots. Select your destination below:
These weather forecasts should give you good information on the weather's plans in Texas for the next several days. I hope the weather plays along with your vacation plans!
