Soldiers Pass Sedona Rain Recap
Why Does Humidity Make Us Feel Uncomfortable?
While most of the country can be in stifling heat and humidity during the summer, the weather in Sedona, Arizona, is about average for this time of year during the monsoon. These 2021 temps are about average and should be similar in 2023. It is very rare to see 107º temps.
Sedona Lacks Stifling Humidity
One big difference in all of Arizona is the lack of stifling humidity. The human body cools when perspiration escapes the millions of pores in our skin and evaporates, causing the skin to cool (evaporative cooling). However, humidity forces the perspiration process to slow down or work harder. With all the surrounding moist air, the skin cannot cool, causing discomfort.
Humidity makes warm weather feel warmer and cold weather feel colder. Very low humidity can also be an issue for some. It may cause cracked skin and nose bleeds.
Drink Plenty of Water...
Evaporative cooling speeds up in these conditions and may cause dehydration very quickly. Drink plenty of water in dry conditions. Know the limits of your exercise and exertion, especially when outside. We can adapt well to relative humidity between 30% and 70%. Ideal conditions have a humidity level of between 50% and 60%. The average humidity in Sedona is 47.5% (year-round), but humidity is a little higher during the monsoon, as noted by the chart above. But it still falls within the comfort zone!
Thankful For A Full MonsoonBesides all the beautiful images of sunrises and sunsets with colorful and dramatic clouds, we are usually blessed with a full monsoon. In 2022 it started a little earlier than usual. Tropical storms off the Baja Coast in the Pacific Ocean in late June brought a lot of moisture to Arizona and the Southwest. Since 2010, Soldiers Pass, Sedona, received the most rain at 25.92 inches in 2018. Using that year as a gauge for our rain so far this year, we are ahead of 2018. We already have 14 inches of rain through April of 2023.
What Stands Out...There were a total of 39 days of rain recorded for all of 2020. So far in 2021, we have had 37 days through 7 months. Last year we were right at 301 days of sunshine. We are looking at 285 days of sunshine this year. There are more cloudy days because of the monsoon so far this year. Overall - Sedona is a beautiful place to live every season of the year. You get seasons, but they are bearable compared to other parts of the country. So, if you are in need of thawing out, Sedona might be an option for you!
