Do You Want Four Seasons
Looking for a beautiful place that truly lets you enjoy all four seasons? Come to everybody's hometown!
Prescott enjoys what is probably among the finest four-season climates experienced in the U.S. - a mile above the oppressive desert heat of summer, yet warm enough to melt a snowfall off within a day or two in winter. Low humidity year-round benefits respiratory patients, yet there is enough moisture to support many square miles of Ponderosa Pine in the nearby National Forest. And there's plenty of Arizona sun, too!
Here's a tour of the typical weather experienced each season:
Wintery storms can still have an effect in early Spring, it's not unusual to see at least a few snowfalls and cold nights through April. By May, daytime temperatures are warming noticeably, although evenings still require a sweater. The frequency of precipitation has dropped off dramatically. June ushers in the first hot days of the year; upper 90's is common as summer approaches. Humidity can be as low as the single digits. June is also the driest month of the year.
Early summer brings a continuation of very warm, dry weather. But gradually, clouds begin to build in the afternoons. The "monsoon" season begins in earnest by around July 10, bringing sometimes torrential downpours during afternoon thunderstorms. Temperatures that have soared to the 90s at noon can plummet to the 70s by late afternoon after a storm. Even on the hottest days, temperatures will be comfortable by evening; you may even need a light sweater!
The rainy season has ended by early Fall, ushering in pleasantly warm days and crisp nights. A few winter-like storms may brush the area by mid-October, bringing a little rain and jacket weather. Gardeners are wrapping things up, the first frost can be expected before October ends. Snow is a distinct possibility by late November.
Sunny cool days with deep blue skies and freezing nights are sandwiched between occasional storms bringing cold rain or snow. But will it be a white Christmas? Only about a 10% chance, unfortunately
