Recap of Sedona Weather – January Thru Jun 2018
In the chart above, you can see there are no days, so far this year below 40º for a high. Even with 3.75 inches of snow, which melted quickly, most locals were able to get by with sweaters and maybe gloves and/or hat in the early morning. We did not see any temps at 100º until June. June is generally our warmest month because monsoon conditions do not develop until July keeping temperatures down in July and August. This is evident on the 2017 chart below. There were only 8 days of 100º+ temps in July and 0 days in August! The low temperature does move higher in July causing the mean temperature to rise slightly, but the high temperature averages usually remain lower than June.
Why Does Humidity Make Us Feel Uncomfortable?
While most of the country is in a heat spell, the weather in Sedona Arizona is about normal for this time of year. One big difference in all of Arizona is the lack of humidity. The human body cools when perspiration escapes the millions of pores in our skin and it 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 an uncomfortable situation.
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. 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 in 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%.
As We Move Into Our Sedona Summer
We have had a mild winter and lovely spring. It was a little cooler in March but April was a little warmer than last year and the leaves on the trees seemed to take a little longer to unfold. May was just a little warmer with less rain.
Sedona Weather for June 2018 – Rain Recap
We are off by about 12 inches from last year. Now that we are officially in summer and monsoon, we should see a lot more rain.
What Stands Out…
The Sedona weather up through June 2018, has had 13 days with less rain and 159 days of sunshine. It only makes sense that with less rain comes more days of sunshine. We are on a path to get well over 300 days of sunshine here in Sedona. This is 9 days ahead of last year’s pace. Last year we recorded 300 days of sunshine. Three hundred days of sunshine is fabulous but we still need the rain and I hope monsoon will provide it for Sedona and the rest of Arizona.
Overall – Sedona is a wonderful 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!
