Red Sky At Morning….

Another Gorgeous Sedona Sunrise

“Red Sky At Morning”

Sedona Monsoon Sunrise

The saying goes…..

“Red sky at night, sailors’ delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.”



Red Sky At Morning – As I was going to bed last night, there were flashes of lighting and the distant and muffled sound of thunder. The pitter-patter of the rain started off slowly and then the heavens opened up creating a quarter of an inch of rain in 10 minutes. Then it stopped suddenly!

Sedona July Weather Summary – Cottages At Coffeepot

So far this month, our Sedona weather station, which is at the end of Soldiers Pass, has had 2.81 inches of rain. Considering we have had only 1.25 inches of rain from March 1st to June 30th, we are welcoming this rain with open arms!

The high for the month was 106.3º on July 5th, before the monsoon kicked in. From July 6th to the 18th, we have had rain every day. There have been only 4 days at 100º or more and 4 days in the low to mid 80ºs. The low temp for the month was 55º and the average so far is 78º.

The average humidity has been 60%. I personally most comfortable around 40%. With low temps and low humidity at night, we can open windows and keep them open until 10 am on average.

If you have never seen the monsoon, it is in full swing right now. Mid-July through Mid-August is peak time. This time of year thunderhead cells just pop up and they are unpredictable.  These events are so amazing, that sometimes we just put our chairs out and watch the weather develop!


Monsoon-tornado like cloud forming

This tornado like cloud had a very slight rotation but as I took the image, it started to break up at the bottom. Tornados are extremely rare and the only documented one was in the high country near Flagstaff. The closest thing we have to this is a dust devil event in desert areas with high heat.
