    Texas Weather & Terrain:

    As a general rule in Texas, weather conditions are consistently dry and hot along its southwestern border with Mexico; the Gulf Coast is usually hot and humid with very mild winters; central and north, summers are also hot but with colder winters. Winter snow and colder conditions are common northwest, in the Texas/Oklahoma panhandle.

    The statewide average high temperature in July is in the high 80's, while in January, high temps statewide reach the mid 50's.

    Texas rainfall varies, with up to 20 inches per year in the west, 30-35 inches central, and much higher amounts in east and southeast along the Gulf of Mexico. With such a vast terrain, almost every landscape and climate is found in Texas.  The state boasts the awesome Rio Grande River along its western border with Mexico.

    The Port of Galveston sits on the Gulf of Mexico and hosts throngs of beach loving visitors throughout the year, with bustling Houston just a short drive to the North. Dallas and Fort Worth sit on the rolling plains and hills of the East Texas prairies that are dotted with lakes.

    San Antonio is found on the vast flat southern plains with big skies that let you see for miles. Austin sits at the southern end of the Colorado River as it passes on its way to the ocean and El Paso nestles at the base of the Davis Mountains to the West. All of these great cities are home to unique adventures and great things to do on a Texas vacation.

    Famed for the Alamo, cattle drives, cowboy boots and hats, rodeos, oil and gas production, NASA, a high-tech industry second-to-none, the magical cities of Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio; and so much more, it can truly be said that, "Texas...It's like a whole other country." Ensure your vehicle is in good condition and that you are prepared (i.e., check tires, carry snow chains, replace wiper blades, dress appropriately, and carry food and water, etc.).  Get plenty of rest, don’t over extend yourself, drive defensively and arrive safely.  KILLING yourself and your family to get here serves no useful purpose!
