Texas Geography

Almost the entire territory of the Great Plains in Texas is plateaus (the Edwards Plateau in the central part of the state and the Llano Estacado Plateau, located in the northwest and in neighboring New Mexico), the height of which rises very smoothly from southeast to northwest (from about 700 to 1500 meters). Huge expanses, covered with steppe grasses with occasional trees, turn into a semi-desert in the northwest. There are a lot (more than 20,000) of drying lakes and salt marshes here.

The western counties of Texas are located in the “ridges and basins” (or “Trans-Pecos”) region. The relief of the region is very diverse, arid steppes are replaced by forested mountain slopes and sand dunes. It is here that the highest point of Texas is located – Mount Guadalupe (2,667 meters above sea level). West Texas is part of the Chihuahua Desert, the second (after the Great Basin) in area in the United States.

Several large rivers flow through the lands of Texas, including the Rio Grande (forming the border with Mexico), its tributary Pecos, the Brazos (the longest river that flows entirely through the state), the Colorado, the South Red River (which borders with Oklahoma and Arkansas) and others.

The vast area of ​​Texas also causes a significant variety of climatic conditions on its territory. In general, the eastern part of the Lone Star State has a humid subtropical climate, while the western part has an arid continental climate.

Located to the east, near the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Houston (the largest city in Texas and the fourth largest city ​​in the United States) hot and humid summers (average August temperature – 24°C to 35°C) and mild and warm winters (average January temperature – 6°C to 17°C). Precipitation is plentiful all year round, but snow here is a rarity. On the plains of the northern regions of Texas, the climate is temperate, semi-arid. The average temperature of the coldest month, January, around the city of Amarillo, varies from -5°C to 9°C, while the hottest month, July, ranges from 19°C to 33°C. In the extreme west of the state, in El Paso, the climate is dry with hot summers and fairly mild winters. There is very little rainfall here, the average temperature in July usually ranges from 21°C to 35°C, and in January from 0°C to 15°C. El Paso is known as the “City of the Sun” and typically has over 300 clear days a year.

Texas is quite often hit by the elements. Severe thunderstorms are common in the Lone Star State, especially in the northern and eastern counties. From the Gulf of Mexico, hurricanes periodically hit the coast, bringing casualties and destruction. For example, on September 13, 2008, Hurricane Ike claimed the lives of about a hundred people and caused damage worth tens of billions of US dollars. Tropical cyclones are dangerous not only with strong winds, but also with heavy rains that cause floods.

In the northern regions of Texas, the famous “Tornado Alley” begins, passing through the states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. Here, on the expanses of the Great Plains of Texas, more of these destructive tornadoes form than anywhere else in the United States of America (an average of about 140 per year).
