We spend a good deal of the summer in eastern Oklahoma and I agree with you all on the humidity. But they do have trees so there is some shade and you can survive as long as you do nothing more than breathe. The thing about AZ heat is that it seems so relentless - never a cold front to drop temps much. Fall becomes something you look forward to much as, I suppose, northerners anticipate spring.

[quote=INPHX;2314311]The heat in Tucson is nothing like the heat in Phx. /quote]

NOTHING like the heat in Tucson? There is like a 5 degree difference.
That is overexagerating. When it is 100 in Tucson it is about 105-107 in Phoenix. ALWAYS it is 5 degrees warmer in Phoenix, but that is about it.

Sorry, Beliy Plashik, if you love rain, snow, clouds and fog . . . Tucson is definitely NOT for you.

I've lived in both cities and still travel to Phoenix quite a bit. You're right about the high temperature in the afternoon, not much difference.

The difference between the two cities is in the evening, Tucson cools down quicker once the sun goes down and cools off more during the night. The monsoon is also more active and can create some larger temperature differences when it rains and when there are a lot of clouds.

We had fog last week, that was weird. It lasted much of the day. Very rare.

I love temperatures 85 and up, especially over 100, but I'm pretty lax weather-wise. I don't wear a coat at 55, as most do.

The day I visited to scope out Phoenix as a potential place to live was the infamous July 4th, 2007. The minute I exited the airport into that 117-degree heat, I knew this was where I had to live.

I'm responsible for that one! Just recently opened my darn mouth and said I haven't seen fog for years.
