Climate in McAllen-Reynosa
Blessed with warm temperatures and sunny days throughout the year, South Texas lies on the border between the semi-arid American Great Plains region and the tropical climate of Mexico.
Air currents from the Gulf of Mexico fuel our hot, humid summers. The area enjoys more than 200 days each year where temperatures exceed 86°F/30°C.
Each year, tens of thousands of retirees from the Mid-West and Canada (colloquially known as "Winter Texans") spend their winters here, taking advantage of our mild temperatures and dry weather to partake in outdoor activities such as birding and hiking that would be impossible back home.
The wettest months of the year tend to be April and May. Severe weather such as tornadoes and hurricanes are rare but not unheard of.
McAllen-Reynosa lies in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9b.
