Leander is located in Williamson and Travis Counties in central Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 26,521 residents, but as of 2013, it tops 30,000. The town was originally settled in 1882 as a stop on the railroad on the way to Austin. It was named in honor of Leander "Catfish" Brown, a railroad official. The Leander Independent School District has grown into the largest school district in the county and the fastest growing district in the state of Texas. The city continues to grow and prosper with new businesses and an expanded roadway network to assist the residents of Leander in traveling into the Austin area. Leander is known for being near the site that the Leanderthal Lady, a skeleton dating back 10,000 to 13,000 years, was discovered; the site was one of the earliest intact burials found in the United States. Leander is also the northern terminus for the Capital MetroRail Red, located on U.S. Highway 183 north of Ranch to Market Road 2243. Leander Station also has access to several express bus lines, and includes a park and ride facility with 600 parking spaces.

Leander Weather & Climate

Central Texas has a subtropical-subhumid climate characterized by hot summers and dry winters. Central Texas basically has two seasons - summers that last from April through October, and winters that start in November and usually lasts until March. When summer ends, it's too dry for autumn foliage, except in East Texas. Precipitation is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, although most occurs in May and September in the form of thunderstorms. Large amounts of rain falling within short periods of time cause flash floods. Hail is reported an average of 31 days per year and tornadoes are reported on an average of 12 days per year. Average yearly rainfall is near 32 inches. Average sunshine varies from about 50% in the winter to near 75% in the summer. Although tornadoes are rare, they are most often associated with dissipating tropical storms.
