Arizona Climate Recommendations
If you live in Scottsdale, the desert climate brings extremely hot summers and mild to warm winters. Tucson homeowners experience much the same, with hot summers and mild winters representing the area’s two major seasons. Humidity is low and the skies are clear in early summer, before giving way to higher humidity and frequent rainfall in mid to late summer. Spring and fall are very much alike, offering warm or hot days and warm or cool nights.
