If you are headed to Fort Worth in September, you are coming on the tail end of the summer time. It will not be nearly as hot as July and August, but you will definitely need to be ready for the warmth. It is also the middle of potential hurricane season, so based on the weather report, there might be a higher chance of rain/thunderstorms. I would recommend packing for very warm weather, and also throw in some sort of light rain coat just in case.
Also, Fort Worth is very condusive to walking, especially in the museum district and the Stockyards, so bring some comfortable walking shoes, and enjoy the sunshine!
Even in late September Ft. Worth was still quite hot, in the low 90s, it seems to be a fairly casual city so I was fine with capri pants and nice tops for dinner. Pack light colored clothes, it really makes a difference in how hot you feel. It gets a little cooler at night but I never needed more than a short sleeved shirt.
We didn't have a drop of rain so I was fine in sandals the entire trip. But I also packed an umbrella and light sweater just in case, after all it is still hurricane season in September
Bring a hat if you don't want your head to scorch
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen
Miscellaneous: I brought a water bottle from home, saved me from having to buy bottled water while out touring.
Miscellaneous: I love to send postcards when we travel, but sometimes forget the stamps. Pick up some beforehand and it will be so much easier to share a little of your trip with friends or family back home if you are traveling domestically!
Kristi put it just perfect "Even in late September Fort Worth was still quite hot, in the low 90s, it seems to be a fairly casual city so I was fine with capri pants and nice tops for dinner."
Pls take a look at Kristi's Fort Worth packing-list tip.
In FW around June or so is when it gets really hot(80s-100s) so if you are traveling to FW around that time you should take loose cloths. In any case you should take a pair or shorts etc, you can never be to sure about North Texas weather.
Miscellaneous: If you are going to be doing alot of walking then the 2 main things you need to have is Bug Spray & Sunscreen!!!!
You won't need boots or a cowboy hat. You can buy those things in Texas when you get there. A phrase book to explain Texas slang would be handy...
