Would like to move back to the area (lived there for a couple of years as a kid), just need a remote job!

Maybe I am very weird because I don't mind the summers in AZ. I even had a sweater on during Wednesday morning around 6:00am. But I can how the heat can be oppressive for most people here.

But I miss Sacramento's night time weather. I use to love cracking my window to naturally let my room cool off and not use AC.

Yeah this past week or two has been bizarrely cool here in Phoenix. Low 60s overnight in late May? High in the mid 90s in late May? It's damn near cold here!

I don't mind the Phoenix summer either. The dry heat is not a big deal for me. The water pipe thing sucks, and also the toll the heat takes on car interiors that aren't shaded. It's more the wife that can't handle the weather, unfortunately. She won't like the Sacramento summer heat, but will probably appreciate that it cools down so low at night.

Last June in Sacramento there were a fewhundred plus degree days. I don't know about you, but I had turned on the ceiling fan all the way up and was just sitting at my desk, and I was sweating. Granted, I was on the second floor of the house.

It’s not great, the summers are horrible. Winter is fine.

Looks like late May heat wave! Even hotter temps than Arizona which is odd.

I only experienced two winters here in Phoenix but they have been rather cold. My friend told me that Phoenix's winters are usually not this cold and it even snowed up in Northern Phoenix earlier this year or the year before.

That is unusual. I believe on average, it's in the upper 60s during the day, but it can get cold at night -- very similar to Palm Springs. Tucson, I believe, is a smidge colder.

I notice a few hours of rain in the forecast for much of NorCal (including Sacramento) early next week -- and although that's unusual outside of the rainy season, especially since the rainy season was pretty dry to begin with, it will be a nice relief for people's gardens after this current heatwave.

I see it the other way around. Summers are better than most anywhere (except So Cal on the beach) and winters are horrible with gray days for weeks and weeks. The fog isn't as bad as it once was but still bad at times. Overall not bad though.

Scorcher today and we may beat May heat records with over 100 temps all week. Over 80 at night and humid.
