Generally, the weather in Texas varies from humid and muggy in the east to arid in the west, with short winters. From mid-April through October, weather conditions include blistering heat and relentless sunshine, but being such a large state, Texas does experience different climatic conditions in the various parts of the state. The geographical regions of Texas encompass swamps and pine forests in east Texas and mountainous deserts in west Texas, thus it is easy to see why the climates can vary. Spring is lovely in Texas where the temperatures are in the 60’s and 70’s and the wildflowers, such as bluebonnets, are abundant. In the Fall, you can experience explosive colors in the foliage. Overall, the cities and regions included in our program are best visited during the Spring and Fall. Summer should be avoided at all costs because of the oppressive heat. The coldest months in the winter are January and February and should also be avoided.
