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. Generally, though, showers are short and intense and rainy periods don't usually last more than one or two days. The winters here are fairly mild, but once again our size is a factor. The temperature variance from the northernmost and southernmost points in Texas is an average 20 degrees, with the southern tip (known as the Rio Grande Valley) usually in the sixties and seventies 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. In any case, ice is a short-lived occurrence in most parts of the state below the Panhandle.
