Weather in San Antonio
Texas summers are HOT! They key is staying hydrated at all times. Make sure to bring water with you to all the events and when you are out sightseeing with your Airman. July is typically the hottest month.
Texas does have mild winters compared to other parts of the country – but it still gets cold here. The high might be listed as 76 – but its not going to get to that temperature until around 1 or 2 in the afternoon. Most of the BMT events are outside and in the early morning when it is still really cold – sometimes in the 30’s. Many people were caught by surprised and were wearing ‘summer’ clothes and freezing. Your best bet is to dress in layers so you’ll be warm in the morning and can be comfortable when walking around Base in the afternoon.
