Local Climate

The Coastal Bend hosts a subtropical climate with perfect beach-weather at almost any time of the year. There is no such thing as a harsh winter here, as the mild temperatures do not drop to or below freezing often. Temperatures range from an average low of 46° F in January to an average high of 97° in July, and only reach freezing a few times a year during the winter months.

San Patricio County’s position along the lower Gulf Coast in the Coastal Prairies region makes for a warm and enjoyable climate with moderate humidity and an average annual rainfall of thirty-one inches. Cool breezes from the Gulf of Mexico ensure that the area evades the typical dryness of Texas. The average growing season lasts 303 days.

San Patricio County currently covers 693 square miles of generally flat land with tall prairie grasses spotted by mesquite and live oak trees. While the eastern part of the county lies on the coastal plain, the western area of the county is surfaced by rolling caliche hills and soil that is well suited for field crops and grass production. The elevation in San Patricio County ranges from sea level to 200 feet.
