Question by OrganicGirl: Arizona Residents: Can you please tell me what the weather is like in the winter and summer?
I am a soon-to-be graduate in the Midwest, and I am searching for a city to relocate. A couple of weeks ago I began considering Tucson, and ever since people have been telling me how HOT it is in the summer. I am from Louisiana, so I’m used to the heat and humidity. I realize southern Arizona is dry. So can you please tell me exactly what it’s like? If I am considering taking public transportation and owning a Vespa, will that be a mistake in the summer? Thank you!

This site gives you weather averages for each month in Phoenix. If your Vespa sits in the sun all day in the summer the seat will be very hot to sit on 🙂 Public transportation would work if you don’t mind waiting in the heat until it arrives. It’s very HOT and DRY – like heat from the oven. Tucson is a couple of degrees cooler than Phoenix but not much.

    I can answer your question effectively. I went to undergraduate college in the midwest but was born and raised in Arizona. I have also lived in North Florida and South Florida for about ten years. I also worked in Texas for a year and drove from FL to TX via I-10 and Lousiana many times last year. I often drove through Baton Rouge then to Beaumont, TX and Houston then Austin or San Antonio. The public transportation of Tucson is not that great compared to Metro Miami or Metro Austin.

    Tucson is very hot but only the summer from late May to about late September. It is extremely dry. It does get somewhat humid during the monsoon season of late July and August but nothing like Louisiana. The winters are very mild and the spring and fall are great. So the weather is generally good for about 9 months.

    Why not try Austin, Dallas, or Denver too? Texas has many great jobs for new college graduates. Tucson is kind of a limited job market. I eventually had to leave Arizona for my career in medical devices.

    I did go to college near Chicago long ago. The winters were horrific. I remember taking a flight to Phoenix during a blizzard. There was an incoming flight with a family that got off. I’ll never forget what the father said to his family when he saw the sub-0 temperature reading of the Indiana airport – “I told you we should have gone to Houston.”
