Why Is Sedona Weather Almost Perfect?
April had a little of every temperature range! There is nothing hum-drum about the weather. We enjoyed some Sedona 70º plus spring weather at the beginning of the month and around the 9th, a cold front came in and made it feel like winter for about 5 days. Of course, that is if your winter is in the 50ºs and 60ºs! We had no freezing temps and only 1 day dipped below 32º for about an hour. The mean temp was almost 1º higher than in April of 2019. This was probably due to 6 days of warm weather in the 80ºs and 3 days in the 90ºs.
The Perfect Amount of Rain
As for our precipitation, we had 5 days of rain for a total of .91 inches. This was perfect to enhance all the spring blooms. Everything is looking great. Drought conditions don’t exist right now. Currently, we are on track to hit a little less than 300 days of sunshine. We are at 91 days and last year we were at 92 days of sunshine.
Making The Case…
So, when you put it all together, Sedona’s weather is almost perfect. Did I mention it doesn’t get humid? This is another plus in my book. No real hot sticky or bone-chilling weather, simply because of the lack of humid conditions. Even when it is warm, mornings and evenings are cool. That means you can have windows open bringing in our Sedona fresh air. We do not run the AC all day. In fact, the AC was not run at all during April.
A *Comfort Index of 8.0 Means Very Pleasent Temps
This April, almost the entire month was above 70º. After leaving behind a fairly chilly March, April was almost perfect. There were only a couple of days that we put the AC on and that was only for a short time. The first day of < 80º weather was April 22nd at 81.3º. Only 4 days later, we hit 90.1º on April 26th!
Every morning and evening, the doors and windows could be open to allow that fresh air in as noted above! A 50º temperature is spring-like in Sedona. Low humidity means light sweater conditions.
Sedona Real Estate Spring Selling Season Starts In January
As I have said before, the Sedona spring selling season starts in mid to late January. Many people from colder states are visiting and want to see homes or condo get-aways. Of course, Cactus League Baseball season which started in late February brings baseball fans and Snowbirds to Sedona and Arizona to take advantage of the warmer weather, celebration of Valentines’ Day, Presidents Weekend, the Sedona International Film Festival, Spring Break, and did I mention the much warmer weather! Hiking is also huge this time of year. Needless to say, the pandemic has brought all of this to a halt.
