March's average daily high temperature averages 63 degrees Fahrenheit (17 Celsius) and our "patented" Arizona sun makes for wonderful outdoor activities. Night-time temps will drop sometime during the night to an average of 35 degrees Fahrenheit (2 Celsius) so you'll may want to plan on dressing warmly a for the evenings while staying at our Sedona BB.
In the unlikely event that weather is inclement while you are here, just ask us to dust off our "Rainy Day Activities" List. We can find lots of exciting things for you to do anyway, including just relaxing by the fire here at Canyon Villa with a spectacular view of the Rocks right before your eyes the whole time.
For at least a 7 day Forecast, you can check out Sedona on the National Weather Service which is highly accurate right down to our zip code. You may note that the area is shown as "Big Park". This is an old mapping name of our area of Sedona and is accurate for our specific elevation, so don't let that throw you. You will be on the right page. Some of the other big internet weather sites generally lump us in with Phoenix or Flagstaff when in reality we are usually somewhere between the two. Remember that elevations are critical when looking at weather in Arizona. For the record, Phoenix is about 1600 Ft, Sedona averages 4,000, and Flagstaff around 7,200. The higher the elevation, the cooler the weather. Sedona is usually about 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix (in the summer months we are up to 25 degrees cooler than Phoenix) and about 10 degrees warmer than Flagstaff. In the winter, it may freeze here sometime in the early morning hours, but NEVER during the day. (Well, except for ONE cold day in Jan, 2013 where we couldn't quite get above 32 degrees all day long.....a most unusual cold spell for us at our Sedona Bed and Breakfast.)
TIME ZONE: MOUNTAIN STANDARD - (NO Daylight Savings Time)
With the exception of the Navajo Nation, Arizona does NOT participate in Daylight Savings Time which will start on Sunday March 9th, 2013 at 2:00 AM, and run through Sunday, Nov 2nd until 2:00 AM. This means that we are 2 hours behind Eastern Standard Time until Mar 9th. As of March 9th, because we do not change for Daylight Savings time, we will be the equivalent of Pacific Time which is 3 hours behind Eastern Standard.
