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 … (28 comments)

sedona: 2019 - Sedona Weather Recap - Final - Did we hit 300 days of sunshine? - 01/10/20 11:02 AM
Sedona Weather Recap Final for 2019
Everybody has a different threshold of what they think is a good temperature range.  The above chart is designed to show you different temperature ranges and how the days fall in those ranges. 
Note: There were no days with a high below 32º. This means that snow melts every single day if we have any.  Because humidity is felt in both cold and warm temperatures, the temps do not feel as hot or cold as other areas of the United States.  We get very low humidity overall. That means no "sticky" weather or "frigid to the … (38 comments)

Holiday Dusting of Snow In Sedona
Holiday Dusting of Sedona Snow from Rick & Sheri Sperry on Vimeo.
During the holidays, a cold front came in from California. It started late on Christmas Day and it kept trying to snow. Little flakes came down sporadically all day long. We definitely did not have a "White Christmas". But the storm eventually gave us a dusting of snow to appreciate the beauty of our red rocks in Sedona Arizona, especially during the holidays.

Fall In Sedona
A Wonderful Time of Year!
Fall Splendor! 
My favorite time of year has arrived. The weather is always perfect. Crisp air in the AM, sunny and high 70ºs to low 80ºs.  Fall color won't start in Sedona until late October or early November and usually goes through Thanksgiving. 
Hiking and Tourism
We are already seeing more tourists and more hiking. The temps start out in the high 40ºs.  Just two weeks ago the lows were in the low 60ºs! However, we will not see freezing temps for quite some time, usually around Thanksgiving.

It seems Mother Nature has taken a "Raincheck"!
The "NONsoon" - Monsoon Update
I am disappointed to say that the image above is from June of 2016. So far, Central and Northern Arizona are having a "NONsoon" this summer.  In 2018 during June, July, and August, my husband's weather station recorded 6.16 inches of rain.  So far in the same period, we have had only 1.65 inches and 1.59 inches came on one day! A quick update on September 1st, 2019.  The total rain in August was 0.61 inches which adds to the 2 month total with 2.20 inches of rain.  A significant drop … (27 comments)

Mother-in-law's Cushion
Otherwise, know as Golden Barrel Cactus or Golden Ball.  It is a well-known species of cactus found in east-central Mexico.  This plant has become endangered in the wild.  As you can see, the Golden Barrel Cactus is being used throughout the desert-scape of Arizona as an architectural accent plant. You will find these in many desert gardens. They do not like excessive water and do well in winter above 50º, however, they can withstand temps down to 15º for short periods.

sedona: It's All About Sedona Rainbows These Last 10 Years... - 07/12/19 05:21 PM
My Sedona 10 Year Journal of Life
As I look back 10 years in the past, a rainbow comes to mind.  Every time I see a rainbow, I stop and watch it as long as I can.  Rainbows remind me of the awesome power of Mother Nature and how the rain is ending and there are sunny days ahead. Rainbows are just out of our reach and each one reminds me of how magical our journey on this earth is. 
Each year there are note-worthy rainbows that hold a memorable Pot o' Gold at the end.

Happy Sedona Spring!
It's Here!
Finally, spring has sprung!  At least in a big part of the country.  Last year, 26 days were above 60º.  Eleven days were above 70º and one day made it to 81º.  This was actually much cooler than March of 2017.  There were 17 days above 70º in 2017.  But Mother Nature does not wait around. 
If Mother Nature has not given you the opportunity to thaw out yet, well, I hope it comes soon for you. It is nice to see all the flowers starting to bloom and the fruitless plums with their blossoms all along the SR89A which is Sedona's main … (38 comments)

sedona: What happened to our Sedona Spring? - 02/17/19 03:47 PM
The Sedona Spring Is On Hold!
Today I woke up to a light dusting of the fluffy white stuff. You can just see a little snow on Coffeepot Rock in the picture above. For the last couple of days, we have been getting nothing but winter storm warnings on the news, as messages on the emergency network. We will see what materializes. 
Our spring real estate selling season starts on February 15th.  Sedona will be extremely busy from now until after the 4th of July weekend. By now, our fruit trees are blooming (normally).
The temp on February 17th one year ago was 64º! … (23 comments)

Sedona Snow....It's just different!
The 6 Hour Difference
Two images taken 6 hours apart.  The first was shot at around 8 am at 23º!  There was about 2 inches on my windshield but the backyard had fluffy white stuff at about 1/2 inch. The bottom picture was taken 6 hours later at around 2 pm and 45º. 
This cold front has lingered enough to keep some snow and ice in the shaded areas that the sun does not reach. Some of the red rocks also still have some snow as I was driving today. 
Humidity Causes Evaporation
All in all, this is more normal than not.  Snow … (31 comments)
