It is suppose to reach 100 degrees in Tucson today and in Sierra Vista--a place frequently mentioned here for having better overall temps--is at 91 degrees. It will only go higher and higher for the next month.

My cousin lives about an hour north of Santa Barbara in a small, agricultural town. I'm really not sure of the summer temps, but she doesn't complain about the heat and they grow flowers (commericially) in the winter, so I imagine the winter temps are good.

If it were me: Sierra Vista hands down if discussing Arizona; it will colder (winter) and hotter (summer) but its average temps are damn close to the 50F-80F range year round

Well, you and the other fine regulars on this board no doubt know MY opinion of Sierra Vista's climate.

I don't know of anyplace in Arizona quite like that - Flagstaff might be the closest, with summer highs typically topping out around 80. Winter highs are a bit cooler though - with highs looking like they are in the 40's.

Maybe some place in Northern California (near the coast)?

I was thinking the same, Phoenix area can be a furnace several months of the year. My experience of 10 years around 100+ from late spring to mid-fall. with a few 'cooler' days in the 90s from time to time. Flagstaff, though, like LB said, it doesnt get quite as hot there during those summer months.

But Flag's winters are flat evil.

Flagstaff is 20 to 25 degrees cooler in the summer than Phoenix. Yesterday we were 103 or something and Flagstaff's high was 80

I agree Sierra Vista has one of the best climates in AZ ....I would also consider Bisbee too....it's about 5,700 ft above sea level in SE AZ ...it has average high temp of 57 degrees in Jan ....and 87 degrees for average high in July ...also keep in mind 87 degree in AZ is NOT like 87 degrees in the east ...none of that oppressive heavy humidity

I think the OP shud check out ....

Sierra Vista
Bisbee
Prescott
Flagstaff (abit too cool maybe)

And also in New Mexico...

Silver City
Ruidoso
Timberon

But if your criteria is average LOW temp must be above 50 degrees then it has to be CA ...
Santa Monica,CA has average low temp in January of just over 50 (most places on west coast are mid to upper 40's)
