Today's Forecast

The Autumnal Equinox occurs today at 1:02pm in Arizona.  It's when the sun's rays move directly over the equator.  Nights begin to get longer as days get shorter.  Officially, it's fall.  This year, the start of fall happens to be on the same day we're getting a cold front through our state, and so we're actually getting treated to some cooler weather. 

Look for mostly sunny skies and breezy conditions today with a Valley high of 90 degrees.  Temperatures fall even more this weekend, when we'll wake up to lows in the 50s and 60s around the Valley.  Flagstaff will see lows near freezing!  The weekend will be full of sunshine statewide and in the Valley, the temperatures won't make it higher than the mid to upper 80s both Saturday and Sunday. 

A slight warming trend back to the low to mid 90s is on tap for next week.  At this point, no rain is expected for the next seven days.

        This Arizona spot sees more freezing nights than Flagstaff

        There is one place in particular that sees quite a few nights with overnight lows below freezing, 241 to be exact!  Bellemont, just outside of Flagstaff, sees more freezing nights than cities in Alaska and Minnesota.

        We may have to wait a little longer for fall to arrive in Arizona, but when it does, it's AMAZING. And that includes the fall colors. Yes, even in Arizona we get those reds, golds and yellows. It just takes a little bit of a road trip from the Valley to find them.
