Getting to Phoenix
September through April, Phoenix enjoys mild and pleasant weather. Autumn is perhaps the best time to visit, although if you visit in the spring you will be able to witness the many festivals that are held around that time.

Autumn and Spring time sees pleasant days with temperatures in the 70-80°F range, sometimes up to 90. After sundown however the temperature can drop and occasionally may even go down as far as freezing in the very early hours.

The occasional rain shower or cloudy day can also be expected at this time of year. However when you consider that Arizona boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year, chances are the clouds will not last long.

Those who are brave enough to visit in the summer (July thru August) can expect temperatures above 100°F (38°C) for weeks at a time, it is not uncommon for the temperature to hit 110°F (43°C) in midsummer.

The common expression; and you will see it on bumper stickers t-shirts and so on is "Arizona - it's a dry heat". Well dry it may be but the month of August is HOT. Think what it is like when you open an oven door and you are standing too close and you will have some idea. The heat takes your breath away, with almost zero humidity. Even so if you are out in it for too long it becomes tiring. You will find that most residents tend to do very little outside at this time until sundown.

Beware also because Summer is also monsoon season (July), when following the heat of the day the end of the afternoon will see the emergence of sudden thunderstorms complete with flash flooding.
