When is the best time to fly to Waco?

Waco sits in central Texas, with the Brazos river running through one side and Waco Lake on the other. The weather in Waco varies drastically, with swelteringly hot summers and cold winters. It’s consistently dry and sunny year-round, so you can probably leave your umbrella at home. On average, there are 230 sunny days per year in Waco. Spring is a nice time to visit, with temperatures warming from daily highs of 73 – 87 degrees Fahrenheit between the beginning of March and the end of May. This is peak tourist season, so book your travel early and expect to pay a bit more. When summer hits, scorching high temperatures of 95 – 100 degrees Fahrenheit can be a bit much for some. Make sure that your accommodation offers air-conditioning if you visit in summer. The heat continues into September, and even October, but lets up considerably in November. This is the least busy time of year for tourism, so it might be a great opportunity to find deals on flights and rooms. From December – February, daily high temperatures of 61 – 63 degrees Fahrenheit and lows that can dip below freezing are considerably less comfortable. It even snows occasionally, so make sure to pack warm clothing if you visit during winter.
