Snow in and Around Phoenix

By

We don't get much snow in Phoenix. Although you may have heard about snowball fights taking place, and snowmen (and snowwomen) being erected around town on March 11, 2006, the official weather for Phoenix happens at Sky Harbor International Airport, and there was no measurable snow there. In the higher elevations surrounding the Phoenix metro area, at around 2,000 of elevation and higher, there was snow.

Here are some photos of snow submitted by About Phoenix Visitors. We had snow in the Greater Phoenix area on December 6, 1998. I know, because I had a holiday staff party at my house that evening! The snow was in the northeast part of the Valley. Then, on February 20, 2013 there were many snow sightings in Scottsdale and North Phoenix. It still didn't officially count because there was no snow at Sky Harbor Airport. The last time there was officially measurable snow in Phoenix was in 1937.

Did you take pictures of the snow around Phoenix? You can submit them for inclusion in this gallery.
