Since I work a lot with out of state buyers, and Phoenix has a very hot reputation, I am often asked how hot it really gets during the summer months here. So I compiled an average high temperature chart below to assist those thinking of moving to the Valley of the Sun. As you can see, and as expected, the summer months are hot! We live in a desert, so that makes sense. But I can tell you truthfully, 100 degrees here feels a lot cooler than 100 degrees in most other areas of the country due to the lack of humidity. As has been said many times before, it's a dry heat. Also, notice how pleasant it is the rest of the year. So keep that in mind when you may be freezing your tail off elsewhere:
