Texas Hill Country

We're planning a week touring in the Texas Hill Country. We plan to be there March 24-April 1. Can anyone tell me what chances there are for reasonable weather and seeing wildflowers in that time frame?

Wildflowers are reasonable to expect, but not guaranteed. Weather can range from the 40's to around 90. Be prepared for a good range of temps and moisture conditions. Odds of gusty winds out of the South are high.

Layers for the wide range of temps you can expect and rain gear for the thunderstorms. Wild flowers and a good time almost certain. Enchanted Rock and Pedernales Falls SP among the many interesting places in the Hill Country.

Mount wide tires if possible. Will make for a more comfortable ride on rough chip seal common on Texas highways.
