Appropriate Clothes for the Seasons

Weather and appropriate clothes

Is heavier clothing ever appropriate?

Well, that depends. During the winter season there are days when the temperature goes as lows as 30 degrees between the day and nighttime hours. In addition frost appears in sections of the city as well. Therefore, some heavier clothing like jackets, sweaters, slacks in heavy materials like denim and corduroy, wool skirts and dresses, even stockings will be more than adequate. Keep in mind that Phoenix is void of traditional seasonal changes and only two hours away, near Sedona or Grand Canyon, the weather becomes climactic.

The heat gets intense, what should you do?

The sun gets scorching hot in Phoenix so flip-flops are not the most appropriate footwear as your feet might get sunburned. Sleeveless tops, shorts or capri pants, summery dresses, t-shirts, soft shoes that cover your feet are ideal. Sunglasses with UV protection and sunscreen are a must. Water can be cooling in intense heat so be sure to bring swimwear for a dip in the pool or swimming at the beach.

Spring

Springtime in Phoenix consists of occasional showers, dry spells, and occasional snow in the mountain regions. Nothing too erratic. Both shorts and long pants will do along with a hoodie/sweatshirt or lightweight sweater and sneakers. Don't forget an umbrella in case it rains.

Summer

Sizzling hot are the best words to use for Phoenix summers. Short of walking around stark naked light clothing, shoes that cover your feet--espadrilles come to mind or lightweight sneakers--a jean jacket for those nighttime temperature surprises, and a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face from the sun are necessities. Lightweight loose fitting clothing is best for adults and children. June is the driest month with the most sun with the warmest weather in July. Temperatures average at their lowest at roughly 70°F to 80°F while the highest temperatures usually reach 104°F to 107°F. Typically temperatures are over 100°F for at least 110 days of the year from May to early September. In summer there are 12-hrs of sunlight daily with 14-hrs of blazing sun in June. August is the rainiest month but offers little relief as it only rains five days out of the month!

Winter

Cooler temperatures are roughly between 39°F and 46°F with the average high temperature between 67°F and 75°F. December is the coldest month when several days a year the temperature drops below freezing. This could be a welcome change from the scorching summer temperatures! In any case, jeans are ideal and any long pants of medium weight material. Dresses worn with nylon stockings for additional warmth will help retain heat. Long-sleeve tops and accessories like scarves, gloves, and hats, all come in handy. During the day the temperature will rise a bit so be prepared with a lightweight overcoat and short-sleeve tops.

TIP: If you are the recreational type, a pair of burly hiking boots for rock-strewn terrain and slippery desert pathways will keep you steady.

A Few Things to Know About the Weather

The city of Phoenix is said to have the hottest climate of any leading city in the United States due to its location over a region of the Sonoran Desert. The city has a subtropical dry climate resulting in tolerable springs, scorching hot summers, undistinguishable autumns, and mild winters. In general, the sun is virtually always shining with an 85 percent chance of sun rays, great if you like tanning, with intermittent rainfall. Probably what's most bothersome are the high temperatures during the summer season. With the possibility of reaching 120°F, lightweight clothing in pastel or bright shades are best for staying cool. Still, hot-is-hot and no amount of colors or lightweight attire will shield you from the magnitude of the intense heat. If you are not required to go out, it's probably best to stay indoors under the comfort of an air conditioner until the weather cools down if you find the high-temperatures unbearable.
