The elevation of a city is the geographic height of that point relative to sea level. Elevations in the Greater Phoenix area don't vary all that much because the cities are close and in a valley - hence the nickname the Valley of the Sun.
Keep in mind that the elevations within any city mentioned here are noted at a particular point (not at the peak of any mountain) and elevations within cities naturally vary.
Some of the cities in Pinal county are considered for many discussion points as part of the Greater Phoenix area; people living in those cities often work, play and shop in Maricopa County. Cities at a higher elevation than Phoenix (about 1,072 feet), where the official temperature is usually taken, may be up to five degrees cooler than Phoenix. In the heat of the summer, the temperature depends not only on the elevation, but on the environment. So, for instance, areas with lots of concrete and buildings will be hotter than those with more vegetation.
