Flagstaff's climate is considered sub-alpine therefore we have four distinct but mild seasons here at 7,000 feet elevation. Summer daytime temperatures are generally in the 70s and 80s with nights dropping to a cool 50-degree range. Rarely do we reach daytime temperatures at or above 90 degrees. July and August bring pleasant afternoon rain showers that sometimes bring hail and even snow to the San Francisco Peaks.
Fall weather is generally dry and cooler with daytime highs in the 60-degree range and nights in the low 40s and upper 30s. By November, we usually get snowfalls and our typical winter snowfall averages close to 100 inches in town and over twice that in the San Francisco Peaks. Most winter days are sunny however and our snow does not stick around long in town due to our dry climate. Springtime brings lots of flowers with daytime temperatures in the 50/60-degree range through April and nighttime temperatures just above freezing. Stray snowfalls can continue through May, although our variable springtime weather can bring 70 degree days with lots of sunshine. Flagstaff averages over 300 days of sunshine annually with strong UV's so we use sunblock and moisturizers here year-round.
