Born in 1972, I have a long history of experience living in Arizona and through Arizona’s weather changes.
Every year, like clockwork, we experience two similar events. As the cooler weather aproaches, for a few days at the beginning of October, the weather cools down significantly, offering the illusion that Fall has arrived. Time and time again I remind people that it’s just an illusion and a crazy prank being pulled on us by the weather gods 🙂
Every year when it cools off, it heats up again for a short period of time, then the temperature quickly falls off to a very cool level. There’s really a shortage of perfect days in the valley of the sun; those days where you roll the windows down in the car and speed around with your hair blowing in the wind (must have hair.)
When the weather warms up at the end of spring, the same thing happens. We get a warm spell, then it returns to a comfortable cool, and then WHAMMO! Hot.
Thankfully we do not experience freezing weather here during the day…although for those of us who don’t really know what cold is (I’ve never been below -7 degrees) we think that 50 degress is cold.
Either way, have a bit of patience these past few weeks and we’ll see some beautiful weather! It’s already fantastic at night!
