Southern Tier East to West beginning in September
« on: June 07, 2011, 04:58:26 am »
I was going to start in March but plans change! Any experience heading that way in late summer or early fall? Not too, too hot in the east and not too cold in the Mts out west, I hope!

I did the ST - east to west - starting on  September 29, 2009.  Amazing weather:  it's a mixture of everything: humid(ish) in the gulf area and cooler in the mountains.  As for snow, it's hard to say.  The week after I went over Emory pass - early november, it snowed.  It can get cold in the mountains almost any time of the year.

But, no question.

September is a perfect time to leave.

If you get to El Paso by October you might want to be ready for some cold / cool fronts moving in from the north. It could be rainy for short periods. September can be hot in the east and in Texas with temps. of 98 F. By the time you get to Arizona you might find cooler temperatures. If you take about two months to do the trip I think you will start off hot and end up cool.
