What’s the weather like in Texas in April?
Located in the southern USA and forming part of the country’s border with Mexico, Texas is a huge state with diverse landscapes. With everything from barren deserts to lush forests and miles of sandy beaches, there’s lots of different weather across the state too. There’s a humid subtropical climate in the east, while the west is drier but has big swings in temperature from day to night. In April, things start to get very hot in Texas as springtime goes on, although the month is generally quite damp for the east.
Houston is close to the Gulf of Mexico coast, in southeast Texas, and has an average temperature of 21ºC in April. With highs of 26ºC and lows of 16ºC, it’s lovely and warm at this time of year, although the city expects almost 90mm of rain this month. Further inland, temperatures are very similar in Austin, although the city has around 20mm less rain during April. Head west for the sunniest, driest weather, with El Paso in the state’s far western corner having just 5mm of rain at this time of year, and 11 hours of daily sunshine. It’s a bit warmer in the evenings in northeastern Dallas though, which has highs of 25ºC in the peak of the afternoon.
