It will then start to get warm around march.

Editor of the farmer’s almanac, Peter Geiger, said that Arizona can expect heat later this spring around may. Don’t worry there will be no cold or humidity, but unfortunately, there will be another dry heat Spring with sizzling summers. “What we’re seeing is mild and drier than normal for spring,” Geiger stated.
