Weather in Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon National Park has two visited areas, one on each rim, with differing weather conditions. The South Rim, the much more popular side, is warm to hot in summer, with frequent thunderstorms. Spring and fall are usually pleasant, and winter is usually tolerable. The North Rim is generally quite a bit cooler, due to its higher elevation, and also experiences more precipitation. The North Rim is closed by snows from about November through April. Conditions change in the extreme within the canyon, where temperatures in summer can exceed 110°F. The statistics below are taken from the South Rim. North Rim conditions are generally 5-10°F cooler. Inner canyon temperatures can be 15-25°F higher.
