Odessa Weather & Climate

The Northwest Big Bend Region of Texas has an arid to semi-arid climate. This is the farthest region west in Texas, and includes the Chihuahuan Desert and isolated mountain ranges. During fall, winter, and spring, the Big Bend Region receives the most sunshine statewide. It is also the driest, receiving an average annual rainfall of only 16 inches or less. The area is known for its' stark, flat landscape. There are few trees, with most of them being mesquite trees, which resemble large bushes. The wettest months in this region occur during the summer, and mostly in the mountainous regions. Winds are often strengthened as they are forced to push through canyons and valleys, occasionally causing dust storms. In the flatter areas these winds are harvested for electricity.
