Phoenix Continues to Reopen in time for Memorial Day Weekend

Average temperature low and high: 67° - 94°
Arizona fully reopened in March, and things are finally getting back to normal over a year after the pandemic. May brings the first real taste of summer to the Phoenix-Scottsdale area. The weather is still cool enough to explore nature trails and other desert attractions in the mornings and early evenings, but temperatures get hot and settle into the mid-90s around mid-day. That means a pool and a cocktail are calling your name.
