Why Sedona Arizona Is A Magnet For So Many...

During the winter months, Sedona can experience a snowfall. However, the snow evaporates rather quickly. Generally, within one day the snow is gone.  It is rare that we see a day that does not go above freezing.  As soon as the sun comes up, the snow will evaporate. We have "polite snow", it does not overstay it's welcome!

Sedona - A Popular Destination

Choosing Sedona as a home destination will become more understandable as you see the reasons below. Though there are many reasons buyers choose Sedona, these are some of the reasons that buyers express when looking for that special home. Buyer say they love the healthy mild climate. The air is clean, there are outdoor activities all year long including hiking and mountain biking among the red rock formations. Golf and tennis are other popular activities. Just living among the red rocks and enjoying a dark sky is a powerful draw for buyers. Mild weather with very little noticeable humidity and 300 days of sunshine is yet another big reason to move to Sedona. Is it any wonder why Sedona is a second home and relocation destination?

Sedona is an International Dark Sky Community

One of the main reasons Rick got Red Rocks Fever was the night sky.  You could actually see the Milky Way at night along with shooting stars. Sedona reminded him of being a kid again when there was little light pollution and you could see stars. With the suburban sprawl that changed quickly.

Sedona has taken great strides to continue to suppress light pollution and preserve the dark sky. There is an actual city ordinance that covers what residents and the business community can do with lighting.  In 2014, Sedona was designated the eighth International Dark Sky community. There are 18 other communities world wide including Big Park  and Village of Oak Creek, Arizona.

Flagstaff Arizona was the very first city to be designated IDA back in 2001. Each area that is designated must meet stringent criteria to carry the IDA designation. There are also 30 International Dark Sky Parks. The Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, Arizona and Elan Valley Estate, Wales, United Kingdom are two such parks.

In another category, there are 13 International Dark Sky Reserves that have also been added to the list. Of the 61 areas world wide, 36 are located in the United States and 7 of those are located in Arizona. Four of the seven are located in Northern Arizona.

Sedona Weather Though April 2018

There are a few reasons why people love the overall climate and weather that Sedona has to offer.  Sedona Oak Creek sits near the northern end of the transitional zone right below the Colorado Plateau. Below the transitional zone is the Sonoran Desert. This is where Phoenix and Tucson are located. Many more species of plants and trees with some precaution can survive in this transitional zone. Cactus, and yucca live right along side juniper and pine trees.

Sedona Has Mild Year Round Temperatures

Often enough, those coming to Sedona are unfamiliar with the difference in weather and conflate the Phoenix weather with Sedona. Many think the heat in summer is 110º plus for the summer months, when in fact there were only 23 days over 100º for the entire year. Not one day went over 99º in the month of August. We have had only 2 or 3 days at 110º or above in the last 10 years. Sedona has long spring and fall seasons. The easiest way to put it is to think of shaving off a month of summer  and adding it to fall and do the same for winter and add that month to spring.

Polite Snow

During the winter months, Sedona can experience a snowfall. However, the snow evaporates rather quickly. Generally, within one day the snow is gone.  It is rare that we see a day that does not go above freezing.  As soon as the sun comes up, the snow will evaporate. We have "polite snow", it does not overstay it's welcome! There have been only two days that have stayed below freezing since 2011.  One was in 2011 and the other in 2012. There were only 42 days that dipped below 32º in 2017. Only 8 days had a temperature below 40º for the entire year. We get seasons but not the extreme temperatures that other areas can get.
