I know, this is kinda premature, but a girl’s gotta be organized, right? I’ll be spending Christmas in San Antonio this year – my first Texan Christmas! (the Mr is Texan if you’ve not guessed). My problem is the last time we visited was mid-May 08 so I have no idea what to expect by way of ‘winter’ weather in Texas… and therefore no idea what kind of clothes to start stock-piling for the big trip!
Can any locals help me out with some advice please?!
Thanks so much.

Texas weather is funny and very unpredictable. Usually our winters are pretty mild with highs in the 40s-60s and lows in the 20s-30s. Although it is also known to get as warm as 80 and as cold as the low teens. (All degrees references are in F)

I lived in SA for 2 years in the early 90s and live in Houston now. For Christmas, the weather can be anything! One year (in 1989), it was freezing (in the 20s) on Christmas Eve, but by the 27th, it was in the 80s and I was wearing shorts.
Usually, the weather in December is mild. But, it can be anything–freezing (for us that means below 40 ), mild and in the 60s, or warm in the 80s. Summer is much more predictable (hot & humid).
So, unfortunately, you can’t really start stock piling yet! Sorry I can’t be more specific.
BUT San Antonio – especially the River Walk – is great at Christmas time!

The weather here is very unpredictable. Usually the highs are around 60F each day, but last Christmas is was freezing!!
I suggest bringing clothes that you can layer and a medium-weight coat. Then you should be fine 🙂

layers it will be then ladies! thanks for all your help… fortunately UK winters tend to be fairly similar, but a bit cooler on average I guess, so I have plenty in the wardrobe already (and just watched “Confessions of a shoppaholic” on DVD and decided perhaps I shouldn’t do any more shopping just yet!).
can’t wait to be back in Texas and especially see the RiverWalk at Christmastime 🙂
