Arizona Weather

Climate:
Arizona's weather is generally divided into two regions. The northern plateau area experiences moderate snowfall and near zero temperatures in winter, and somewhat mild summer temperatures when compared to those of the south.

The southern desert areas experience mild winters and dry, hot summers. Temperatures exceeding 110 degrees are normal along the Colorado River and in the far southern cities; however, humidity is very low so the heat is quite manageable.

Arizona averages over 230 clear and sunny days each year; Phoenix and Tucson areas exceed 300 days.

Rainfall in the central and southern desert portion averages only 8-10 inches yearly, while in the northern mountains, 25 inches, or more, is quite typical.
