I just have to brag about the gorgeous weather in Payson, AZ right now.

Summer clouds in Payson, AZ

Where in the heck is Payson, AZ you might ask? Half the people in Arizona don't know where Payson is, even though its only about an hour's drive North of Phoenix. We're one of Arizona's best kept secrets- a small town in a great location. Payson is also about 5,000 ft UP in elevation from Phoenix, so we are very different climate.

This Summer, we are really wonderful weather. warm enough to use cooling, certainly, but not oppresive. Warm enough to make my garden grow (you should see my tomatoes!), but at night we cool down into the 60s. And on the days when the humidity goes down the nights get into the 50s. After the sun gets over the breezes cool and it is wonderful sit-on-the-deck weather. During the monsoon, storms roll in from the Rim and bring showers that cool things off nicely.

If you want warm weather, but not desert, check out Payson. We get cold in the Winter, but not nearly as cold as "back east". We have a little snow now and then, but also LOTS of sunshine all Winter. We are basically the best of both Winter and Summer. And we are in more or less the center of Arizona, close to both the Phoenix area and to the higher mountains.

Come check us out!

Leslie - now I'M jealous - you know that tomatoes don't do well here in the valley.  My husband takes the good ones and eats them like an apple - he sure does miss the great tomatoes we used to have back in the midwest.  Are there any farmer's markets in your area?  Perhaps a Saturday road trip is in order!!!!  If we come up, I'll let you know.

Hi, Juli. We have a great Farmers market on Saturdays for 8am till noon. And they had a lot of tomatoes last Saturday. It is in the shopping center at the south end of Payson, behind Chilis restaurant.

Leslie,

Your weather sounds wonderful. We are suffering absolutely horrendous heat, no rain and oppressive humidity. Thanks for explaining where your town is located.

I was sorry to read that your neighbors are so awful but thanks for the comment. Maybe those folks will move or is that wishful thinking?

You’re just a big tease, aren’t you? Telling us all about everything, including your tomatoes, and then not showing them to us. J♪♫♫♪

Hi Leslie - how are you holding up?  Good to see you. The climate of Payson sounds so inviting!  Seems the best things are hidden, and those that know of them usually keep them a secret.  Enjoy enjoy!
