Sedona Comfort Index = 8 out of 10

In April 2021, the Sedona weather was nothing like March.  One thing about Sedona, our weather is not "hum-drum".  We had a little of everything in march including 7.5 inches of snow.  So April felt a lot warmer. The first 11 out of 12 days were in the 80ºs. Almost the entire month was above 72º. There were only a couple of days we turned on the AC for a short time. 

May 2021 has been a little cooler compared to May 2020.  The average temperature was almost 3º cooler compared to May 2020. No days reached beyond 93.6º. 

 

Is Sedona's climate Considered Arid or Humid?

 

Here is the difference with a lot of other climates. Our climate is arid. Sedona does not experience much humidity even during our monsoon.  This makes higher temps more bearable.  People that are not used to an arid climate need to make sure they stay hydrated all day.  This translates into one cup of water every 15 to 20 minutes while working outside or at least 1 quart an hour to stay hydrated.

 

How Many Days of Sunshine Does Sedona Get?

 

Currently, we are on track to hit around 3000 days of sunshine.  We are at 121 days and last year we were at 118 days of sunshine.  We ended the year at 301 days.

Good morning, Sheri... as always, I sit and admire your beautiful photos. We haven't hit over 90 degrees yet (that's more like August weather for us), but we've gone to high 80's... it's just that high 80's at this time of year also bring high humidity.

I do like your weather. That much sunshine always sounds so good, especially because you get such great variety with it.

Hi Joan Cox - we finally hit 100º on June 3rd.  But I didn't even know it.  Rick told me this morning!  It is still in the 50ºs at night so it doesn't peak out until the late afternoon, After that, the sun goes into the shade of Coffeepot Rock. So it starts to cool off.

Thank you Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - I can't take credit for the charts.  My husband puts those together.

Why thank you, Jeff Dowler, CRS.  It is very different than Southern California.  We get a lot of white puffy clouds which reminds me of Houston.

Hi Laura Cerrano - It took me some time to get grounded here. But that was years ago.  Very intense energy for some people, especially those who have a hard time channeling it (like me) HaHa!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - I get it. Even LA was cooler than where I lived.  But there is less humidity so it does not feel that warm.  Right now it is 94º but the only way I know that is looking at a temperature reading.

Hi James Dray - That is where my climate differs.  Cold or hot, there is very little humidity.  You don't even feel it much when it is actually raining!

Hi Grant Schneider - Until you get used to it, the warmer temps can be very surprising. This is another reason we constantly tell people to stay hydrated.  You just don't realize it until it is too late if you haven't been drinking water.

Hi Brian England - Thank you.  That chart is something Rick put together, about 4 years ago. I think it was around 2017.  He had been tracking some of those indices but felt that if you show the incremental changes, one could get a better feel for the weather by month and season.

Wow, what a great job Rick does with that!

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - I grew up in Houston with high humidity and when my parents moved to California, I couldn't believe the difference.

Hi Ed Silva - when we lived in SoCal we would get the morning clouds until it burned off in the afternoon.  I never liked that weather.  I like seeing the sunrise!

Hi Rocky Dickerson - I constantly get people who think Sedona weather is the same as Phoenix so these charts really do help them see the difference.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Variety is the key.  We never had that in Southern California.  I enjoy it all, each season and each storm.  It is always different but not too harsh.
