COULD THE WEATHER INFLUENCE YOUR DECISION?
Again,only the South Rim is open year-round.The North Rim is open mid-May through mid-October annually.Weather extremes and moderates occur at both rims at different times of year.
FEBRUARY,MARCH,APRIL AND MAY AT THE SOUTH RIM:
Late winter and early spring are glorious at the Grand Canyon.At the South Rim,average high/low temperatures at the South Rim are as follows each month:Feburary high 45/low 21;March high 51/low 25;April high 60/low 32.Expect to see breath-taking views of snow blanketing the Grand Canyon's surrounding plateau and settled on the nooks and crannies of the chasm walls.Snow can make hiking or walking on the rim trail tricky,so be even more careful than usual and obey posted signs and guard rails.
MAY,JUNE,JULY,AUGUST&SEPTEMBER AT THE SOUTH AND NORTH RIMS:
The spring and summer months are THE most popular season for visiting the Grand Canyon.Average temperatures for the South Rim are:May high 70/low 39;June high 81/low 47;July high 84/low 54;August high 81/low 53;September high 76/low 47.In July and August,when the dew point rises,Arizona experiences monsoon rains.Quick,intense thunderstorms contribute to the rapid-shift swings in weather in the summertime,but locals will tell you that the monsoon season is one of their favorite times of year because it brings relief to seasonally high temperatures and makes the landscape incredibly verdant and fragrant.The Grand Canyon's spectacular vistas just'pop'against a stormy background.
The North Rim is at an elevation over 8,000 feet above sea level compared to the South Rim at 7,200 feet,so it experiences perceptibly cooler temperatures year-round and is the reason for its summer-only schedule.Average temperatures for the Norht Rim are:May high 62/low 34;June high 73/low 40;July high 77/low 46;August high 75/low 45;September high 69/low 39.You can expect an average precipitation(rainfall)totals in the range of 1-3 inches per month at the North Rim,so be sure to pack lightweight layers,including a rainproof outer layer and appropriate camping gear if camping overnight in a developed campground or backcountry campsite.
