Rockwall Weather & Climate

Northern Texas has a climate that is semi-arid and prone to drought. Annual rainfall is between 16 and 32 inches (810 mm). During the summer, this area of state sees the most clear and sunny days. On most winter nights, temperatures fall below the freezing mark, or 32 F (0 C). The wettest months of the year are April and May. Tornadoes are common, caused by the convergence of westerly and southerly prevailing winds during the late spring, making the region part of Tornado Alley. Poor land management, drought, and high wind speeds cause large dust storms. Improved land-management practices have improved dust storms somewhat in recent years. The panhandle region, farthest from the Gulf of Mexico, experiences colder winters than the other regions of Texas.
