  1. Default New Orleans to LA beginning of November - Help!!

    Hi everyone,
    I am new to this forum and I really hope you will be able to help me.
    My boyfriend and I are planning a road trip from New Orleans to LA via Las Vegas for the first two weeks of November.
    I am worried the weather is going to be bad and cold and we should try to go in October, he thinks November is fine.....can you help us out?
    Many thanks

    Default No way of knowing this far out.

    Hi Mary, and Welcome to the The Great American RoadTrip Forum.

    There's no way of knowing what the weather will be, this far in advance. It is possible to look at historical data, and make an educated guess - which I suspect is what your friend has done. But it will only be a guess. In reality, you won't know what the weather will be until a few days out from your departure.

    So go ahead and plan, on which ever month you decide, and take it from there. Travelling at that time it is always a good idea to have a day or two in reserve, in case of weather related delays.

    Thank you for your quick reply Lifey!
    I know what you mean...especially these days when seasons seem to be all over the place.
    I don't mind if it's cold, as long as it doesn't snow really. I'd rather find good weather obviously and would love to avoid a rainy season!
    We would like to arrive in New Orleans, stay there for 2 days, rent a car and drive through New Mexico reaching Las Vegas (stopping on the way)
    Stay in Vegas there for 2/3 days and then go to Santa Barbara or somewhere nice along the cost of California, departing from LA.
    Does it sound like a good plan to you?
    We have just over 2 weeks!
    Thank you again,
