Phoenix Weather

Mother Nature smiles on some cities more than others. Phoenix, obviously, is blessed in the sunshine department.

Fall

While autumn descends across most of the country in September, sunny summer days linger in Phoenix. Come October, the days are warm, pleasant and perfect for outdoor fun while cool nights lend themselves to dining al fresco.

Summer

Hey, it’s hot. The old axiom is that “it’s a dry heat,” and there’s truth to that. The Sonoran Desert’s super-low humidity means 90-degree temperatures (32 degrees C) feel quite nice, and the arid climate causes perspiration to evaporate quickly, keeping you cooler and drier.
