Weather: The weather in Waco is very inconsistent, one day it can be burning hot, and the next day it might be 30 degrees lower. It rains a lot, which can make it hard to get to and from class. Overall, it is generally hot and sunny however.

Weather: Texas weather is amazing, but can be extremely unpredictable. For those of you not from Texas, it will be a shocker when you first step foot on campus or attend your first outdoor football game and it's 115 degrees outside. It's scorching in the summer. Just dress appropriately (bro tank and nike shorts with chacos or sandals) and please please please make sure you're hydrated. Our first football game of fall 2013, they brought a giant thermometer onto the field and it reached 117 degrees. Just carry a water bottle, put on sunscreen, and drink Gatorade. The heat will be worth it though when it is 70 degrees from October on! Throughout the winter, it can go from 30 degrees one day to 80 degrees the next day. You will never know so the weather app on your phone will become the first thing you check in the morning. Spring weather is fabulous and is 70 degrees. Its usually always sunny, minus a few years when we may get an unusual amount of rain (2013-2014). Texas weather is great and you'll be thankful you came to a school in Texas for that reason.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The averages by season all seem very accurate, with the exception of summer. Make no mistake; it gets hot here in the summer. It's no coincidence that Waco, known as the Heart of Texas, holds the acronym H.O.T. It is incredibly humid all year round, and even when classes start in the fall, don't be surprised to show up to class soaked in sweat. Heat and sun stroke are common, mosquitoes are everywhere, and the news will blare all night about staying hydrated and keeping cool. Because of the heat, students go from their air conditioned apartments to their air conditioned cars to their air conditioned classrooms. Texas also has the saying "if you don't like the weather here, wait five minutes," because it always changes. Summer storms blow in and cool it off for a day, but the temperature climbs right back up.

On the flip side, the winters are pretty mild, and you'll catch yourself spending many a Christmas in Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops. Spring is perfect as it's just warm enough during the day. It still cools off significantly at night, but if you come here expecting four solid seasons, think again. Spring turns into a hot summer rapidly, and summer heat bleeds into the fall way past October. Somehow, if you were raised in it, it doesn't seem so bad, but a lot of out-of-staters suffer miserably.
