Late July/All of August are definitely the hottest. I'd say February is the coldest.

I agree. It seems that when the Fort Worth Stockshow starts up - it IS the coldest time of the year.

Agree, late July to mid August are the hottest. February is probably the coldest month or seems it. March can be tricky as well.

If your coming in a few weeks here is what to pack:
Shorts
Short sleeves and for the ladies even sleeveless and some of the nice halter tops are in
Cool fabrics (cotton, linen, etc)
A pair of slacks for the men (dinner some nights depending on where you dine)
An easy skirt or dress to wear to dress up or be casual nice (those maxi dresses are BIG here too) You will see women wearing these even running errands during the day. They are cool and comfortable And you look good even when your "hot"
If you really think you might get a chill being inside in a cold a/c building then a VERY lightweight jacket or sweater (I know women that bring them to church as they get cold)
Sandals (dress, casual, etc)
Tennis shoes if your going to go walk around White Rock Lake or something
Swimsuits
Sunglasses
Hat or visor for keeping the sun off your face while out at the pool
While out running around carry one of the hand towels from the hotel with you If it is really hot and you get sweaty you have something to wipe down with.
Small very compact umbrella - you never know. We are getting rain today and did as well yesterday.

I think it is John Frieda that now has weather proof hair products. It could be very humid here while your visiting and if your hair acts up to humidity you might try those. I do use the one by that line for the leave in hair conditioner for my ends.

Thanks for the packing list, i figured that would be about right!

I am bummin about the hair thing, i have fine hair that falls flat in humidity, i am going to be need of a new do' for Texas....I always LOVE the long fabulous lush hair, unfortuneatley i was not given that....my biggest "pick apart"thing about myself, so i roll with what ive got!

I think the humidity will be a shocker for us. When we visited Austin it was later in the year, and not humid at all.

i am trying to brace myself when i step out of that motorhome!!haha

Correct.

Our hottest is a lot hotter than most places and our coolest is quite a bit warmer than most places.
