Weather in Flagstaff

(Published on - 9/17/2020 5:55:08 PM)

When most people think of Arizona weather, they picture a hot, desert climate. Flagstaff weather is nothing like the rest of Arizona. Flagstaff enjoys all four seasons: summer, fall, winter and spring.

What is the weather like in the summer?

Summers in Flagstaff have sun, wind, and rain. There are the summer ‘monsoons’ that bring rain every afternoon for a few weeks in the middle of summer. The average daytime temperature is anywhere from 65 degrees to 80 degrees; nighttime averages range from 35 to 55 degrees. One thing to remember about summer: always have an umbrella—a sunny morning can easily turn into a rainy afternoon. The best time to visit for warm-weather activities is from mid-June to late August.

What is the weather like in the fall?

Fall is full of colorful leaves and cool, crisp days. You’ll want to wear layers (a scarf, sweater, boots), because the temperature will fluctuate as the sun rises and sets. The average daytime temperature ranges from 50 to 75 degrees; nighttime temps range from 20 to 40 degrees. It’s bit early for snow just yet; the first snow is usually around Halloween but does not stick or last very long.

What is the weather like in the winter?

Surprise! Snow, snow, and more snow. Flagstaff winter days are cold and snow filled—not what many visitors expect. Some winters are milder than others so check the weather report before making plans. The average daytime temperature ranges from 20 to 40 degrees. The average nighttime temperature ranges from 10 to 20 degrees. The coldest day of the year on average is January 4, with a low of 19°F and high of 42°F.

What is the weather like in the spring?

Spring days are a mix of everything from snow and rain, to sun and wind. You will definitely want to check the weather report before heading out. At high altitude (Flagstaff is around 7,000 feet) the sun is more intense—drink plenty of water and rest often. The average daytime temperatures range from 50 to 70 degrees; the nighttime ranges from 20 to 30 degrees.
