There are times when cold air masses from Canada make their presence into Arizona, which in turn brings temperatures well below zero in the higher plateau and mountainous regions of central and northern Arizona. The lowest readings in the winter can drop down to 35 degrees Fahrenheit below zero. In the summer, high temperatures are generally 20 degrees cooler than the lower elevations, such as the Phoenix area.
On the other hand, if you feel you just cannot seem to get enough heat to keep yourself warm because perhaps you have been frozen in the “tundra,” for so long and cannot seem to “thaw out,” then you will adore summer here in the valley.
During the winter months here in Arizona, you can expect daytime temperatures averaging around the 70 degree Fahrenheit mark!
