Welcome to fall in Texas, y'all! Fall is when temperatures start to cool down and humidity drops.

What You Need To Know

  • Bird and butterfly migration is happening

  • Millions of Texans will be hunting this fall

  • Texas fall foliage is usually the best in November

With the first fall cold front of the season already through, it definitely feels like fall around here.

This is the time of the year when cold fronts will knock temperatures down.

By November, Dallas should have high temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

South and Central Texas will have low temperatures in the 50s and 60s in November.

Even the Rio Grande Valley will get a break from the heat.


The bird migration in Texas is usually one of the first signs that fall is coming.

Millions of birds will pass through Texas to get to warmer weather, or some might stay.

Many will suggest turning off your house lights at night to help the birds travel without light pollution.

This is also the time of year that the monarch butterflies will leave their summer breeding grounds to migrate to Mexico to spend the winters. You might have noticed them flying already.


Fall in Texas means making hunting or fishing memories outdoors for many.

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texans purchase more than 2.7 million hunting and fishing licenses every year.
