Weather in October

October is one of the best times to visit Arizona, with pleasant temperatures and beautiful colors in the fall season. The daily sunshine lasts for 9 to 10 hours but is moderately intense compared to the peak of summer. The average high temperatures are in the comfortable 62°F (16.7°C) to 90°F (32.2°C) range, while the average low temperatures are in the wide range of 32°F (0°C) to 62°F (16.7°C). Prescott, Payton, and Painted Desert National Park in the central portion register comfortable temperatures between 40°F (4.4°C) to 73°F (22.8°C).
The peak foliage occurs in the third to fourth week of October in the majority of the state. The northern hilly areas witness color changes earlier than the southern part, which sees peak hues by November. The aspens turn yellow on the Inner Bain Trail in Flagstaff, while maples show brilliant hues in the Pinetop-Lakeside area along the Mogollon Rim by early November. Light sweaters provide comfort in the breezy evenings of October in Arizona.
