When It's The Last Day Of Summer In Arizona...
Do you know what that means?
Monsoon is over, In general, many Zonies are glad that the triple digits are gone In fact, Arizona is in a "cold snap" currently (Oct. 2022). Temperatures have been in the 70ºs and barely into the 80ºs for Phoenix. In Sedona, the temps are in the 60ºs and barely reaching the 70ºs. Starting in October, the Snowbirds will be setting up camp and enjoying that wonderful warm winter sunshine that you only get in the sunbelt states. The most popular states for the migration of Snowbirds for winter are Florida and Arizona.
Sedona is a transition area. Many people have second homes in Sedona to get away from the extreme temperatures of the cold or very warm climates. Before the cold snap hit, temperatures were in the 80ºs with much cooler temps starting in the 40ºs, with some areas experiencing Mid 30ºs during the early morning. The leaves on the trees are already changing.

In Soldier's Pass West Sedona, as in some past years, in 2021, our last day of 100.3º was August 5th! Usually, there are very few days in August with 100º + temps. In August of 2022, August 1st was the only day that reached 100º. However, we had a mini-heatwave on September 5, 6, and 7th. So the last day of 100º was on September 7th at 100.4º.
When there are many thunderstorms, the temperatures rarely go over 100º. This year *Sedona experienced the 4th best monsoon in the last 11 years.

However, we continued to have monsoon conditions well into October, primarily because of the hurricanes coming up the Mexican coast of the Pacific Ocean. As these hurricanes move north, the moisture moves into California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
