Arizona has a very dry climate, no humidity and little to no rain. Nightly temperatures, in the state, may range anywhere from 40 degrees to 60 degrees. Temperatures during the day range approximately 80 degrees to 106 degrees. The highest elevations do receive significant snowfalls but the lower areas tend to be mostly dry.

For most of Arizona for most of the year, it is very dry and very hot. During the summer months is monsoon season, so you can expect heavy rain and, surprisingly, floods. Also expect temperatures that easily pass into three digits. Up north, it snows during the winter and is never as hot during the summer months.

Winters are pleasant with mild temperatures but occasionally can be rainy. Summer sometimes brings monsoons and violent rains.

Arizona has a desert climate with extremely hot summers and mild winters, though the mountains in the north have cooler weather than the desert areas. However, because Arizona's geographical area is large and its elevation varies widely, various regions have localized climate conditions.
