Cool Springs

This time of the year, in Garden City, tends to be cool, with occasional snowfalls and a good amount of rainy days. If you travel during this period, be sure to pack waterproof clothes, rain boots, hats, woolly socks, and plenty of cozy sweaters. If you travel towards the end of the season, you might also want to add a few lighter pieces to wear when the sun comes out.

Turn Up the Heat

With the arrival of the summer, temperatures rise and the chances of rain decrease, though do not expect completely dry days, at least for the first few weeks of the season. Summers in Garden City can be very hot, albeit often stormy. When packing for this time of the year, remember your waterproof gear, but add a few bits like sunglasses, shorts, dresses, and sandals.

Fantastic Falls

Traveling to Garden City in September and October will delight you with lovely, mild weather. Cooler, drier days mean that you can pack skirts, dresses, and t-shirts alongside warmer and cozier sweaters for your evening outings. If you are traveling towards the end of fall, though, add a few waterproof items and a thicker, waterproof coat, as temperatures drop and it is more likely to rain.

Winter Wonderland

The last few months of the year are pretty cold, in Garden City. Temperatures plummet, reaching as low as 20°F. It is not rare to witness beautiful snowfalls, during this time, which makes for a magical atmosphere. A white Christmas in Garden City is definitely not a rarity. If you vacation in winter, pack warm, woolly sweaters, waterproof boots and jackets, gloves, hats, scarves and plenty of layers.

The Most Favorable Weather in Garden City, Kansas

So, when is the best time of the year to visit? If you can, try to book your vacation between late May and mid-September: this is the best time of the year weather-wise. Days are mostly clear and dry, with average temperatures of around 70°F. If you appreciate the advantages of traveling light, then this is the perfect time for you. Booking your stay in late Spring through to early Fall means that you can only pack a few essential bits, as well as enjoy many outdoor activities.

Do bear in mind, though, that the weather in Garden City, Kansas, is very windy all year round, so plan for that accordingly.
