With an elevation spanning from around 2000 feet to over 8000 feet, the Grand Canyon area experiences a variety of weather conditions. This weather variety includes cold winters and mild pleasant summers, moderate humidity, and considerable diurnal temperature changes at the higher elevations, with hot and drier summers at the bottom of the Grand Canyon along with cool damp winters. Summer thunderstorms and winter snowfall adds to the weather variety in this region.

Summer temperatures on the South Rim, at 7000 feet, are relatively pleasant with high temperatures generally in the 80s with temperatures typically warming to over 100 degrees at the river near Phantom Ranch (2400 feet). North Rim summer high temperatures are typically cooler than the South Rim due to increased elevation (8000 feet), with highs typically ranging in the 70s. Overnight lows can still drop near to below freezing occasionally on the North Rim, although typically low temperatures range from the 40s and 50s at the South Rim to the 60s and 70s at Phantom Ranch. Summer thunderstorms frequently occur during July, August, and early September with the potential for torrential rains, frequent lightning, and sudden flash floods. These thunderstorms are extremely variable in intensity and location and occur mainly between the hours of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Some of these storms can reach severe levels, with large hail, damaging winds, and occasionally even a tornado.

The summer rains typically diminish in mid September with a drier fall period the norm with fewer days of precipitation. However, late summer thunderstorms or early winter snow storms have been known to take place during this transition season, making for sudden changes to the weather.
