Sedona Summer Weather
If you’re thinking that it’s too hot to visit Sedona in the summer, you might be surprised. While it’s no secret that Arizona can get hot in the summer months, Sedona’s high-desert climate keeps it a bit cooler here than in other parts of Arizona (up to 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix!).
During monsoon in July and August, Sedona enjoys short, but heavy late-afternoon rains that bring a welcome cool down, and later, create stunning sunsets. Just be sure to be off the trails before they roll in as they bring along high winds, lightning and the possibility of flash flooding.
Planning Your Day
If you plan your day right, you’ll still have plenty of time for fun in the sun before you’ll be ready to head for cover–even on the very hottest days of summer. For those planning outdoor adventures, we recommend waking up and starting out early to take advantage of the cooler morning air. Afternoons are perfect for exploring Sedona and The Village of Oak Creek’s many galleries and shops, taking a scenic drive, or relaxing in our pool which becomes shaded after 2 p.m.
