  What is the Sedona Weather Like in Spring?   Sedona Weather StatisticsApril 2021 For all stats and a look at weather in previous years, go to Sedona-Weather.com  Why Is Sedona Weather Almost Perfect?April has been nothing like March. We had a little of every temperature range as well as 7.5 inches of snow. One thing we appreciate is there is nothing hum-drum about the weather.  Maybe it was the snow but March didn't feel as warm as normal. But, as April came in, there were 11 days of 80º weather in the first 12 days! It felt like someone turned on the lightswitch and Spring was here!  It was time to take all the coverings off the plants as well as pack away the hummingbird feeder warmers.  We had no freezing temps and the lowest temperature was about 36º. for about an hour. The mean t...

James Dray inspired me to refresh this blog which I wrote back in 2018. See his blog "Theodore Matthew Michael Kuhn Jr." to see the reason why!I have updated the material and added an image and videos. For those who enjoy this kind of adventure, I would caution you to do some research before visiting Sedona.  Due to the influence of social media and also COVID, some jeep trails can only be accessed by permit. Trails that are open to the public can have heavy 4-wheel-drive traffic. Parking for hiking is also limited. (April 2021) --> The Broken Arrow Trail is open.  I got that confirmed by one of our Jeep "enthusiast" friends.   Broken Arrow ~ Sedona ArizonaThe 1950's Movie - Broken ArrowJames Stewart along with Jeff Chandler starred in this movie.  Many of the scenes were shot right her...

Sedona Weather Alert!I happened to be nodding off on the couch thinking of sugar plums when my husband yells watch the TV!Here is what he saw..... I was surprised.  I was at a home inspection so I did observe the heavy snow with huge flakes but I didn't know that my husband had submitted this video to 12News in Phoenix.  He found out that one of our neighbors had seen it on an earlier broadcast.   I also found out that he is a 12News "Weather Watcher".  WHO KNEW!   When You Need A Real Estate Professional…   As an experienced real estate professional, and after decades of buying, owning, and selling multiple single-family homes, townhomes, rental property, as well as business ventures in real estate LLCs, and moving from one state to another, I have a unique perspective to help clients....

Almost Speechless Sunday Morning Wake UpLate Saturday afternoon the snow clouds opened up and within a couple of hours, we had another 2.5 inches of snow that started to stick.  By 9 pm, the Milky Way started to poke through the clouds and we could see the twinkling light of distant stars throughout the universe. Even without a moon, you see the reflection on the snow-filtered earth.  By morning, the sky was virtually clear and Mother Nature had finished her painting and the sun was still below the horizon.9 Hours Later...If you hadn't seen it with your own eyes, you would not believe that in the past 2 days we had experienced almost 6 inches of snowfall. The top images were shot around 7:15 am and the bottom image was taken at 4:15 pm. The snow evaporates when the sun is out. You can s...

Coldwell Banker International President's Circle Top 5% of All Coldwell Banker Sales Associates WorldwideI found out near the end of January that I had earned the Coldwell Banker International President's Circle Award for Excellence. I have been so busy taking care of clients that I didn't really think about any awards I might receive.  After all, we are in a virtual world and there have not been any in-person sales meetings.  So there has not been any "buzz" about our 2020 achievements.  I have really grappled with the idea of sharing this. First of all, it was 2020.  I know that many people have had so many life changes.  They have lost loved ones and many states such as Colorado, a neighboring state were completely shut down and unable to work in real estate.  My heart goes out to al...

Happy Birthday Arizona!Happy Valentine's Day!  Unless you follow Arizona history, you may not know that back in 1912, Arizona was admitted to the Union as the 48th state on February 14th.  In this land of sunshine in the middle of winter, many people are celebrating by getting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. I can tell you that the amount of people hiking right now in Sedona is more than I would have thought.  I was going down Soldiers Pass this morning and there were at least 50 people walking on the side of the street to get to the entrance of the Soldiers Pass Trail. Of course, others are playing golf or tennis. Many are enjoying their bikes.  Some will celebrate with cactus themed cakes and outdoor BBQs. 6 Fun Facts About Arizona - The Grand Canyon State Arizona was part...

Sedona Winter Snow EventThis video shows the rise of the snow level from the start to the end - looking to the west (Coffeepot Rock) and the east.  It shows the incremental rise of the snow level and eventual evaporation of the snow. Notice also, "Xander" the hummingbird sticking through the storm to guard his juice source!Sedona as well as most of Arizona has been in an exceptional drought. So the rain and the 8.25 inches of snow were a big surprise and very welcomed!the 8.25 inches of snow fell over 3 days.  Tuesday, got almost 6 inches of snow and the temperature never made it above freezing.  For some, this might not be unusual but for our area of Soldiers Pass, this is only the 4th time in 11 years that the high temperature did not get above 32º.   ~ ~ ~ This is the essence of what...

See the video and learn more about the record snowfall in 2019 Sedona-Weather.comWhat is the Sedona Weather Like in Winter? December 2020The topic of weather in Sedona comes up often.  It is hard to believe that we are starting a New Year and the Winter of 2021!  As for the weather in the month of December, we were able to enjoy our Christmas weather.  There was even a snow flurry right after Christmas which gave us hope we would get some holiday snow.  However, that was not to be. Usually, by the beginning of December, all the leaves of our Japanese Maple have fallen. During this season, there are still leaves on that tree!  The tree may be dormant but the leaves are not brown, they are red, so the tree looks like it is not dormant. It is a very strange year indeed!Also, see "Why Didn'...
