Peoria, as with all of metropolitan Phoenix, experiences wonderfully mild winters and air-conditioned summers. Receiving about 6 inches of rain each year, the city has a stable climate that is not interrupted by Mother Nature. Many outdoor activities are organized from October through April because of the predictably sunny and comfortably dry weather. And in the summer when it is hot, Peoria offers many alternatives from boating and fishing on a lake to indoor recreation.
Arizona’s weather is popularly categorized as hot and dry, but what most people outside the state don’t realize is that Arizona’s climate is actually quite varied.
While Central Arizonans are basking in mild weather with cool breezes in January, folks in Northern Arizona might be swooshing down the state’s ski slopes enjoying a cool winter day. And in the summer, Southern Arizonans could be sunbathing, while people in North-Central Arizona might slip on sweaters and enjoy the crisp night air.
No matter what time of year you visit Arizona, you’ll find beautiful, perfect weather somewhere!
