WHAT TO EXPECT:

Mild to cool sunny days and clear,
brisk nights; possible light rain
Creosote sprouting new leaves after
a winter rain; desert wildflowers
beginning to show their colors

Warm, sunny days and cool nights
The desert landscape blooming with
wildflowers and annuals

Clear, dry, warm days and balmy
evenings; little to no rain
Prickly pears blooming in early May
followed by saguaros from mid-May
to mid-June

Warm to hot days with moderate
humidity; afternoon thunderstorms
Butterflies emerging after the rains;
hummingbird activity increasing before
the birds head south for the winter

Warm days followed by refreshing,
cool nights
Wintering hawks beginning to arrive;
desert mammals active in the daytime
and sleeping during cooler nights
