  • OT Looking for Texans Need some Weather

    Heah partners looking for some rustlers from Texas. I was hoping to get a weather report for around Thanksgiving. I will be flying to San Antonio for my son's grad from basic and have no clue what clothes to bring.

    Could anyone give me an idea of temps. for the end of Nov. and maybe type of weather.

    I was down there (Lackland AFB) in Sept 2001 to watch my son do the same. Great memory and very proud moment. It was HOT!!! Not sure what the weather is usually like around Thanksgiving. Toured the Alamo and had lunch (Mexican) on the river walk. Over the past 25 years I've made many trips to the Abilene Texas area to visit in-laws. Some fine folks down there, I would visit there (San Antone) again.

      I am in Austin (an hour up the road from SA) and it is 39 degrees right now and supposed to top out at 80 this afternoon. Not unusual for this time of year, but often gets much hotter (low 90's). Doubt that you will see a blizzard, but most anything else is on the table.

        Mickey, I think you meant to say that its 47° right now in Austin

        We're having a rare "Cold Front" in Central Texas, so we're getting down to the 40's at night, and back up to 80° in the afternoon.
        As far as Thanksgiving, like Mickey says -- you'll need to check back closer to November. Chances are, we'll be back in the high 80's to low 90's.

          Assuming that San Antonio weather is like Dallas area weather, you should bring some hot weather clothes, some cold weather clothes, and be ready to change at a moments notice.

            Ok now I am more confused I saw the 40* night temps and thought it was weather like here in PA. But to get into the 80's and 90's during the day, I guess I will need to bring cold and warm weather clothes.

            ProGun...yes I expect it to be a real moment watching him graduate. Then I will be going to Floriday in April when he graduates tech school. He is going for TACP. The unit he is attached to has already received their orders for Iraq next year just when he finishes tech school. We will see how that all plays out.

            I expect to see the Alamo and the other attractions.

            Any of you guys that are close by to the base I get in 11/21 in the PM and will have nothing to do that day. If your not tied up with holiday stuff would love to have a beer with ya and shoot the sh*t. Let me know if any of you guys would be just hangin.
            I got the rental with unlimited mileage so driving would not be an issue except for not knowing where I would be going.

              I am on the north side of town and we have frost on the roof and grass. I got up and took the dogs out and looked at the thermometer and could not believe how cold it had gotten. I was out in the garage last night and it got a little chilly, but I did not think that it was this cold.

                  Alistair..thank you for your regards. I hope it is nice as well. It is the biggest thing in my son's life so far. He is proud to defend his country.

                  I will check in as it gets closer to get a report from you Texas guys.

                  Thanks

                    I'm about 25 miles SW of San Antonio. It's been dang bitter cold down here for the past week. Got down to 38 last night. About an hour after the sun comes up, it hits the 50's then climbs from there. I think it was 78 or 80 something today. It's now 70 (7:02pm local).

                    This is unusually cold for this time of the year. Ain't doin' the tomatoes any good. Our winter down here normally runs from about January to the first week of February. We start planting in March!

                      Yeah, you never can tell. I live about 5 miles north of 1604 just inside Comal County (30 minutes from downtown SA).

                      Some years, it can be in the forties and raining - or it might be a balmy 80 degrees and clear to Dallas. There just isn't any predicting but the forecast should be pretty accurate if you check it just before leaving. More likely than not, you may be able to wear shirt sleeves with maybe a light jacket in the morning. It can easily be 20's at dawn and then 70's by noon if a front has blown in and the weather is dry.

                        Ken...are you busy on the 21st of Nov.? I would not mind a 25 mile trip to visit. I know many will be wrapped up with Thanksgiving. Let me know.

                          I live in San Antonio.
                          Around Thanksgiving time, it's usually in the 50's or 60's during the day.
                          Not intensely cold.
                          It may drop down to a whopping 40 degrees at night.
                          Just pack a medium jacket. You won't freeze.
                          Enjoy the RiverWalk, and catch a SPURS game if you can.

                            weather

                            I live in the foothills less then 10 miles from town, but it can be snowing here and clear in town. So I go to the National Weather Service site and put in my
                            zip code and get a seven day forcast. Within 5 miles of my house. Better then the local paper.

                              That's a tourist joke in Texas: it takes 15 minutes to see the Alamo, which is downtown at the beginning of the RiverWalk.

                              Any of you guys that are close by to the base I get in 11/21 in the PM and will have nothing to do that day. If your not tied up with holiday stuff would love to have a beer with ya and shoot the sh*t. Let me know if any of you guys would be just hangin.
                              Jim, I have to confirm with SWMBO, but I'd love to meet you. We could either drive up to Austin and I can give you a shop tour, or I could take you around Austin, or San Antonio.

                              Let me know when it gets a little closer to Thanksgiving.

                              Cheers,

                              Robert
