Del-Rio is located in the western Texas Edwards Plateau, right at the curve that marks the beginning of the Big Bend region of the state. Del Rio is the county seat of Val Verde County, and the Del Rio Micropolitan Statistical Area includes all of Val Verde County. It's bounded on the west by the Pecos River and Chihuahuan Desert and the eastern portion is part of the Texas Hill County. As of the 2010 census, the population of Del Rio was 35,718. The city is known for being home to Laughlin Air Force Base. The base is the area's largest employer and plays a large role in the community. Of historical importance, Judge Roy Bean (1825-1903) owned a general store and saloon in the area. The original Bean building is on display at a Texas Tourist Bureau station west of the Pecos River in the town of Langtry. Judge Roy Bean and his sons are interred on the grounds of the Whitehead Memorial Museum in Del Rio. Bean was the subject of a 1956 television series and also a 1972 film called "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean," starring Paul Newman. The city of Del Rio is also near Lake Amistad, which provides year-round recreational opportunities. Some of the things to do include fishing, boating, swimming, water-skiing, scuba diving, camping, picnicking, wildlife viewing and birding. The lake is also home to several annual nationally-televised fishing tournaments, and Val Verde Valley is rich in archeology and rock art. Also, Del Rio is home to the George Paul Memorial Bullriding, which is the oldest stand-alone bull riding event in the world.

Del Rio Weather & Climate

Southwest Texas , near the border of Mexico, the climate is semi-arid with subtropical temperatures. Summers are long, hot, and frequently humid. Winter months vary between sunny, warm, cloudy, or cool, depending on the wind and jet stream direction. Snow is rare, about every 7 to 10 years. When it does snow, it doesn't last long enough to be of consequence. High humidity, with periods of morning fog, due to Gulf of Mexico air masses, often moves into the area. These humid periods alternate with periods of hot, dry desert air masses in the spring and fall. Cold, dry air from the Great Plains moves into the area in the wintertime. Moisture rarely lasts long enough for weather systems to create precipitation, with exceptions sometimes in the autumn.
