McAllen Weather & Climate

The southern tip of Texas has a semi-arid climate. This region is the southernmost tip of the American Great Plains Region. Subtropical forests line the Rio Grande River, and ranches dominate the landscape inland. Summers are generally hot and dry but at times can be humid if winds come off the warmer Gulf of Mexico. Rain is more abundant in the coastal regions than inland. Occasionally in winter a strong front can come through, bringing light snow at sea level. The winters in the inland region are cold and dry as Arctic sweeps downward. Snow is a rare occurrence due to the lack of humidity in winter. Tornadoes can occur in this region, but less frequent than in other parts of the state.
