Texas Weather in October
What’s the weather like in Texas in October?
Texas is a vast state in the southern US with hugely different landscapes, from deserts to coastlines and forests. The weather changes depending on where exactly you visit, with the east generally wetter than the west due to its more humid climate. In October temperatures are cooling across Texas as the autumn period sets in, but conditions still get very warm in many parts of the state. With as much as nine hours of sunshine each day, this is still a great month to visit Texas for lovely weather.
In the far west of Texas, El Paso has an average temperature of 19°C, in part due to the cold nights the city experiences. There are highs of 26°C during the day, but this drops to 12°C after dark. In Houston, which is close to the Gulf of Mexico, there’s an average temperature of 22°C with highs of as much as 27°C. The city expects 135mm of rain, which is a little more than in Austin, where temperatures are similar. The weather’s almost identical to Austin in the northeastern city of Dallas.
