Typical Arizona Weather

No matter what time of year you visit Arizona, you’ll find beautiful, perfect weather somewhere.  

Arizona is popularly characterized as a sunbaked desert, though that’s only one part of this southwestern state. The diverse terrain of frosty mountain peaks, rolling plateaus and extensive canyons make for refreshingly cool winters and wonderfully hot summers. A perfect holiday destination all year round…

SPRING

  • February to April 
  • Average High/Low: 77°F/50°F

Spring is one of the best times to visit Arizona. The warm, sunny days are perfect for outdoor activities such as a Desert Jeep Adventure, Hot Air Balloon Flight or a Grand Canyon Air Tour. If you’re not the outdoor type then kick back and relax in one of our six unique restaurants and cafes.

 

SUMMER

  • May to September
  • Average High/Low: 101°F / 73°F

Summer in Arizona kicks off in May with an abundance of daytime sunshine, mild evenings and low humidity and rainfall.  Daytime temperatures reach their highest between July and August but the low humidity ensures even the warmest days remain enjoyable.  Take in the sun and lush scenery of our championship golf courses or take a dip in one of our four swimming pools to cool off. 

FALL

  • September to November
  • Average High/Low: 87°F/ 61°F

Fall brings an end to the hot days with cool winds flowing from the Gulf of Mexico and refreshingly cool evenings that are perfect for watching the beautiful, early sunsets.  The clear night skies make for excellent stargazing from The Boulders fairway while the mild days are perfect for a spot of shopping at El Pedregal or a game of tennis on one of our eight terraced courts. 

WINTER

  • December to February
  • Average High/Low: 68°F / 43°F

During the winter months of December to February the mild, sunny days are a pleasant contrast to the clear and crisp nights so try your hand at Horseback Riding or a Cattle Drive for a true “Wild West” experience or treat yourself to a pamper session at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Spa
