Weather in Phoenix in October

Message from Grant, our coordinator for the 2014 Reunion . . .  Glad you’re coming out our way. October is usually a very good month for weather – highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 60s. Also, mainly sunny skies. However, the highest temperature on record for October is 107 in 1980 and the low was 34 in 1971.

I am planning on my usual Reunion attire jeans. You might want a light jacket or sweater for the evening cookout, if you are attending that. Four our trip into the mountains, normal stuff should be alright. I made a run up there in January, and it was shirtsleeve weather. I am crossing my finger, however, in hopes of making sure thing are normal.

As I recall, you have shown an interest in casinos. The two nearest the hotel are each about 5 miles away – one to the northeast and one to the southwest. Unfortunately, public transit does not go near either one.
