I did not grow up in Texas, so I am constantly amazed by Texas weather. Recently it was 32° on a Friday and 64° on Saturday. In less than 24 hours, the temperature doubled. This drastic temperature change creates a few problems. Texans must always closely pay attention to the weather. No one wants to be wearing shorts on a day with 32° or a wool sweater on a day with 64°. I must admit I've been victim of both a time or two.
Traveling can create the same situation. This August, I visited San Francisco, I was not prepared for the chilly summer nights. My Coworker and I were waiting for a few friends in the hotel lobby before the Giants game. After watching a few locals leave in wool coats and scarves, I decided to change into something warmer than a T-shirt and shorts. When we arrived at the game, fans were prepared with beanies and blankets. While I was glad to be in jeans instead of shorts, what I really needed was my winter coat. How confusing...cold weather in California during August.
Since my trip to San Francisco in August, I check the weather before my trip. Southwest has made it a little easier for our Customers to check the weather. Southwest has teamed up with NBC Weather Plus to offer weather reports on southwest.com. Before your next trip, know before you go.
