My husband & I are thinking of a visit next November / December, what can we expect for weather? We will be in a travel trailer. We would like to spend a week at Malaquite state park and then Mustang Island state park and then find a place to stay near Rock Port or the Aransas pass area. We have been watching the weather and this year seems like you are getting alot of rain? Is that normal for this time of year? As like everyone else from the North, we are looking for warm weather, we just had 25 inches of snow yesterday! Any thoughts would be appreciated.

We're definitely not getting a lot of rain. It's drizzled a bit, but we're actually in the middle of a record-setting drought. From now til February you can expect temperatures in the 40's-60's, with maybe an occasional freeze and/or an occasionally really war day (70's-80's). Seven years ago it snowed on Christmas eve, but that was extremely rare. Last year we had what for us was a hard freeze for a couple of days with ice on everything.

I don't think it will be at all crowded if you stay at Malaquite (National Seashore) and Mustang Island State Park. You should check them both out first because the scenery will basically be the same--they're only about 15 miles (I'm guessing) apart, but the amenities are different. You may prefer one over the other. It probably won't be warm enough to get in the water (at least not to me) but we'll most likely have some beautiful crisp sunny days. If we get an "Arctic Front" though it'll be really cold and extremely windy. You'll just have to hole up in your trailer til the wind stops blowing.

When you go to the Rockport/Port Aransas area you'll see lots of Winter Texans in their travel trailers.

Hope this is helpful and hope you have a wonderful time!

Sorry--I just saw that you're planning a trip for NEXT November/December. Hopefully we'll be getting rain by then and the temps will be a bit warmer than I described.

Just like alot of Texas, wintertime is a rather changeable time of year here, but considerably more modified than the northern part of the state. Daytime temps average in the 60s at this time of year, but can range from drizzly/chilly upper 40s and 50s, to the warmer 70s and 80s.

I wouldn't necessarily say wintertime is more wetter than other times of year, but with the strom track being further south, it can add a few more days of wet weather. November is an ideal time of year here, as daytime temps are much more tolerable than summer. I would recommend that is when you come here to visit, although winter time here is overall quite mild.

Corpus Christi has had some of the best Thanksgiving time weather in the Nation the last few years. I guarantee it! 50s and 60s for highs with clear skies and 30s and 40s for the lows.

That is late spring to yall up north, isn't it?

I often wear my favorite tank top underneath my favorite winter coat during the winters here. Whenever I'm asked by someone how they should dress when they visit for the holidays, I advise them to just bring jeans, shirts you would wear in 80 degree weather, and a heavy coat.

Yeah,,, winter in CC was especially tough this year, I actually had to wear socks twice.

I can sympathize with Denverites in winter, I lived in the Denver area for 13 years and every winter I'd get fed up with the cold and snow by Jan 15th, that was when I'd break out and head south to warmer weather on the gulf coast. Corpus was a favorite destination and I ultimately moved here because I could get a job in this town, my other choice destination was the FL keys for the fishing, but there were no industry or jobs there.

The joke I tell about that move was that I tied a snow shovel to the roof of my pickup and when I got far enough south some one asked me WTF is that thing on your truck? I knew I'd finally reached a snow free zone if they didn't know what a snow shovel looked like. The rest is history.

Depending on what type of scraper it is, they are great for shaping sand castles on the beach!
