Its hilly, its Texas, its windy. Once you accept that its OK.
I did one 3 day tour in February that was chock full of weather. The first day was great. I left after lunch and did 40 miles in mild weather. Day two was 45 miles dead on into a 20-30 MPH solid wind, 40 degree temps, with gusts to who knows what. It took over 5 hours. Day three the temp zoomed to the mid-80's with a 10 mph wind from the opposite direction, almost in my face as I came home.
Anything under 15 mph is considered to be a gentle breeze in these parts.
